National Democrats rally against GOP 'poll tax'

National Democrats are rallying opposition to a North Carolina bill calling it a "poll tax."

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is asking supporters to sign a petition against Senate bill 666, which would prohibit parents from claiming a dependent deduction for children who register to vote elsewhere. The bill is particularly aimed at college students.

The DLCC called it GOP voter suppression and a "student voter tax."


"We still need your help to stop North Carolina Republicans’ outrageous Poll Tax bill," Dave Griggs, the DLCC deputy national field director wrote. "Democrats must mobilize to defeat these voter suppression tactics before it’s too late – please sign our petition standing up for North Carolina voting rights!"
