NC bills tackle taxes, student voters

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina Senate Republicans want to make it harder for college students to register to vote on campus.

The senators think that once your child registers to vote, especially if their address is someplace other than your house, they're an adult and you can no longer claim them as a dependent.

The proposal would end tax deductions for parents.

Jay Delancy of the Voter Integrity Project says the legislation is necessary because "college students are easily manipulated" and this would help "protect students from such abuse."
