6. Ehh..

Its a poll tax because its meant to keep a class of people from the polls. It doesn't require non felons to have paid up traffic tickets or other civil fines and fees like child support paid up to be able to vote.

People don't lose their right to vote because of child support or traffic tickets. You lose your right due to a felony conviction.

No court will rule this is a poll tax. The article is written poorly. There are no other fines added on top of restitution and court costs. Converting those costs to a civil lien does not change the fact that they were part of the sentence for a felony conviction.

I voted in favor of this, but this should have been expected as the amendment said that all terms of the sentence had to be satisfied.
