Electoral rolls are the nearest thing Australians have to census records, and hence they are extremely important and useful for local, family and social historians.

The roll for Queensland in 1906 totals over 6,400 pages. Entries are arranged alphabetically by district and by division within the district. You will find the details of over 200,000 voters who resided in Queensland at this time, and who were qualified (and registered) to vote. Apart from the annual roll (published in January 1906), the CD includes the additional rolls published in February, April, June, August, and October 1906.

Though women are listed on Queensland’s Commonwealth electoral roll from 1903, it was not until 1905 that they gained the right to vote in Queensland state elections. The 1906 roll is the first state roll to include the names of women qualified to vote for the election of members of the Legislative Assembly.

The following information is included for many (but not all) entries:

  • No.
  • Christian name and surname
  • Sex (M/F)
  • Place of residence
  • Occupation
  • Situation of freehold or leasehold for which elector’s name is transferred
  • Date when claim received by electoral registrar
  • Polling district

This CD contains high quality scanned images of the original books, and has been bookmarked for easy navigation. Pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.
