Poll Tax: a tax per head; payment of a poll tax was a prerequisite for voting.

In 1966, the Supreme Court of the United States declared poll taxes unconstitutional if they were used as requirements for voting in state and local elections.  It violated the equal protection guaranteed by the 14th amendment of the constitution.
