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 1901 totals over 4,000 pages. Entries are arranged alphabetically by district and by division within the district. You will find the details of about 100,000 voters who resided in Queensland at this time, and who were qualified (and registered) to vote. Apart from the annual roll (published in January and February 1901), the CD includes the additional rolls published in February, April, June, August, and October 1901.
Though women are listed on Queenslands Commonwealth electoral roll from 1903, it was not until 1905 that they gained the right to vote in Queensland state elections.
The following information is included for many (but not all) entries:
- Christian name and surname
- Sex (M/F)
- Place of residence
- Situation of freehold or leasehold for which electors name is transferred
- Date when claim received by electoral registrar
- Electoral district and division
