Poll Tax

“Requiring citizens to pay any amount of money to put postage on a ballot before it can be counted in an election is a poll tax and, therefore, an unconstitutional barrier to our constitutional right to vote. Because of the pandemic, the number of voters who mail in ballots will skyrocket. It is all the more imperative that unconstitutional barriers like this poll tax be removed immediately.”

- Sean J. Young, legal director of the ACLU of Georgia.
