Some require that the voter shall be able to read and understand the Constitution.
There was as yet no secret ballot to set the voter free.
But under the second constitution the most that was required of any white voter was the payment to the state er county of taxes on either personal or real property, and by an amendment of 1826 this requirement was abolished.
There was a guy who'd give you the money and tell you the name of the voter you were supposed to be.
An elector must be able to read or write (unless he or an ancestor was a voter in 1866 or then lived in some foreign nation) and must be 21 years old, and a resident of the state for one year, in the county six months, and in the election precinct 30 days, and women have the privilege of voting at school meetings.
