3. I hate to do that to a Democratic candidate but am seriously considering it

I am not sure if marking email as spam still adds them to blacklists. If it does, I would hate to wholesale add Democrats to those lists that are used to block mass quantities of emails.

I'm pretty sure many of the candidates are good people, but their email practices suck. Aside from sending emails to people all over the country that may not welcome appeals from far places, and from having non-functional unsubscribe links, they often simply list their name or the name of a campaign worker in the subject line. Much of the time I DO mark emails from unknown persons as spam without ever opening the email.

It's when the same names kept showing up over and over and over and over that I finally used the Properties to look at some of the emails and discovered that most of the unknown name emails were from Democratic campaigns. But that takes time and these days my energy levels are too low to waste my time on their stupidity. Still, I was doing that, then opening the safe emails to use their unsubscribe links to get off their lists - but those are NOT working.

Maybe tomorrow I will call one of the local candidates I have supported and ask them to send my complaint up the chain. Because if this continues to increase at the rate it has over the last few months, I will STOP ALL communication with the Democratic Party completely.
