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.

Printed electoral rolls were produced by Electoral Offices to assist in the management of elections. An electoral roll is a listing of all those residents eligible and registered to vote in a particular area. 

In the nineteenth century, the management of elections, often under a restricted franchise, was undertaken by colonial authorities. From 1901, with Federation, the Commonwealth Government gradually undertook the management of the rolls for both State and Federal elections except for Western Australia.

Because enrolment was compulsory for all eligible voters (with the exception of Norfolk Island) there is a strong likelihood that a person can be located.

The information you can find the Queelsnad State 1896 Electoral Roll is:

  • No.
  • Christian Name and Surnam
  • Qualification
  • Situation of Residence or Property
  • Age
  • Place of Abode
  • Occupation
  • Particulars of Qualification
  • Date when Claim Received by Electoral Registrar
  • Polling District

Until the advent of widespread computers in 1985 which brought about the publication of single lists on microfiche and hence the easy searching of databases, researchers were somewhat restricted by the large number of name and the arrangement of the rolls into Divisions (the Commonwealth term for an electorate). Publishing scanned versions on searchable CDs overcomes these significant barriers.

High quality scanned images of the whole of each volume of this year's electoral books. This CD has been bookmarked for easy navigation, and pages can be searched, browsed, enlarged and printed out if required.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Any computer using Adobe (Acrobat) Reader 4 or later
Adobe Reader 6 or later is recommended for CDs with searchable text
