Advocate (Newspaper) - February 6, 1964, Victoria, Texas THE VICTORIA ADVOCATE 272 TELEPHONE HI 8-H51 RECORD i Voting Strength I Lowered i It looked n little too good lo be true and It was, Victoria County Tax Assessor Collector H. Campbell Dodson reported Tuesday that an earlier report on poll tax payments for IBS'! had been found, on a closer check, to be nearly too high. The earlier report from the assessor-collector was that poll tax receipts had been issued, along with approximately exemption certifi- cates in the city of Victoria. The corrected figures, Dodson said, now show that poll lax receipts were issued, with the exemption certificates remaining about the same. This means that the county's potential voting strcnjjlli for the 1364 elections will be nearer to the original estimates of than to the inflated estimate of about It still remains a record-breaking figure for poll taxes in Victoria County, but only slightly above the receipts issued in the last presi- dential election year in 1960.
