Poll Tax Payment.
It is held by the Attorney General
that in cities collecting poll tax
from male voters women must pay
a city poll tax, as well as that to
the county and the State, in order
to vote in primary election held,
even though primary elections be
for state county and distrist officers.
The law requires male voters to
pay city tax and the Attorney
General construes that part of the
woman suffrage act requiring the
same qualifications as male voters
to compel payment of the city tax
With the city poll tax usually
about $1 women residing in such
places will have to pay a total of
$2.75 to get the privilege of voting
in this year’s primary, elections.
Not all of Texas’ cities require pay-
ment pf a poll tax. ' In such places
women will pay the usual $1.75
for State and county purposes.
Poll taxes of men and women
mustjbe paid at the office'of the
County Tax Collector unless such
payment be made to the Collector
or his deputies while he is on his
rounds throughout the* county as
provided in Art. 7615, Received
Civil Statutes, or unless paid to a
duly authorized deputy in a city -of
10,000 or over other than the
county seat as provided in Art.

Following is privilege for those
living outside of cities :
Women living in rural precincts
and,nothin Cities of 10,000 inhadi-
tants < can authorize any one jbd
act as their agent and send the
money for their poll tax to the
collector’s office. Any such agent
can act for as many persons as she
or he desires. All orders must be
presented in person by $uch agent
on or before Jan. 31,1920.
Some persons are under the im-
pression that poll taxes a*e $2.75.
Such is not the case. It is only
$175. Out of this amount $1 is for
State schools, 50c revenue and 25c
civil government. The city poll tax
is governed by the requirements of
the individual city, and in Lancas-
ter \t is $1, as in moist other incor-
porated towns and cities, which has
caused many to think the state and
county tax alorfe is $2,75.
