MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The next deadline to register for Wisconsin’s no-call list to block calls from telemarketers is Tuesday.

Those who sign up through that day will have their phone numbers put on the list starting Jan. 1. The next chance to sign up won’t place numbers on the list until April 1.

The list is open to home and cell numbers, but registration must be renewed every two years. Anyone who has forgotten when they signed up can sign up again to be safe. More than 2.28 million numbers are on the list. That is the most since the program began in 2003. Nearly half of the numbers registered in this year’s fourth quarter were cell numbers.

Sign up by calling 1-866-966-2255 or over the Internet.
