BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - A pollster who is calling Erie County voters on behalf of county executive candidate Mark Poloncarz is annoying voters.

"They called me literally 10 times today alone," one person complained on an online blog. "I am so sick of it."

Another writes, "They keep calling and it's so annoying. How do I get them to stop?"

Poloncarz campaign spokesman Peter Anderson said the calls are not associated with the Democrat.

"Some of these complainants have been saying they've been getting anywhere from five to 14 phone calls per day from this person who is not associated with our campaign," Anderson said.
