Quorndon Electoral Roll 1920

Electoral rolls, by definition only include those people entitled to vote. However, despite this limitation, they can provide a valuable link between family names and addresses within an area, covering that sometimes difficult period after the latest released census returns. Note: 1911 is the latest census return available at the time of writing in 2013.

The 1920 Quorn Electoral Roll was produced in alphabetical order of surname, and no house numbers are included. This is not as useful as later electoral rolls, which are in street (house) order.

Because this register was compiled after the 1918 Representation of the People Act, it includes nearly twice as many people as in, (for example), 1915. Women over 30 now had the right to vote, but this was still subject to certain residence conditions that did not apply to men. It would not be until the 1928 Representation of the People (Equal Franchise) Act, that women would get complete equality in voting rights.
