Independent Voter Research was the name of a fictitious company run by the 2012 Romney presidential campaign. An automated calling system connected MyMitt political volunteers to people who were most likely to be independent voters.[1] The system obscured the volunteers' phone numbers to allow the caller to remain anonymous (the number displayed is either 6513195921 or 8665403140).[2][unreliable source?] The volunteer read a script and asked a few questions about the election. Unanswered calls received a voice message. Returning the call produced a recorded message: “Thank you for contacting Independent Voter Research. We’re sorry to have missed you. We were trying to reach you to get your opinion. Have a nice day.”[citation needed]
