Electoral rolls in print

The Library holds many of the original printed NSW electoral rolls which are bound according to year and electoral division. These are not held on open access but must be requested for use via the Library's catalogue. All but the latest year held (2009) are stored offsite at the Library's Hume warehouse. As the rolls are also available on microfiche on open access in the Newspapers and Microforms Reading Room it is recommended that these rolls be accessed instead of the print.

You can locate entries for the NSW electoral rolls in the Library's catalogue using the following exact terms, including quotation marks, in a search:
