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.

Entries are arranged alphabetically by district and by division within the district. You will find the details of tens of thousands of voters who resided in New South Wales at this time, and who were entitled (and registered) to vote. Apart from the annual roll, the CD includes the supplementary rolls published for each district.
