The National Library has the largest collection of political ephemera in Australia. While the collection contains material dating back to 1901, it was not until 1983 that the Library began to collect federal election material comprehensively. The Library’s Australian federal elections campaign ephemera contains over 20 000 items ranging from broadsides and handbills to posters, hats, T-shirts, fridge magnets and bumper stickers.
To find other material held by the Library try searching the library's catalogue using the words "elections australia" (include quotation marks).
The National Library can provide copies of certain materials and interlibrary loans for registered users. For more information go to our Copies Direct service.
