We're not sending any sort of mail or emails that might be construed as a solicitation to a couple of states. I'm not aware of the reason, but it has to do with state registration.
However, we have emails in our system but no address information for the constituent. If they opt-in to our emails, would we still need to exclude them from our fundraising emails?
Has anyone required either a state or zip code when signing up for emails?
We are a relatively small shop, but we ask for zip code and only add people to the solicitable list if they provide one and qualify (we are only registered in a handful of states). This means we also have to monitor our address changes for those people if we have a mailing address, and remove them from the solicitable list if they move away from one of those states. It's all done manually and only manageable because our email list is fairly small.
