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 July 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 million numbers are on the list. Half of the numbers registered in the previous registration were cell numbers.

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

Telemarketers who violate the state law face a $100 fine per call.
