Electoral rolls or voting registers list people who were eligible to vote. Information listed in these records varies from place to place but generally includes the name of the voter and a place of residence. Some registers also list an occupation, when a person obtained citizenship, and occasionally other details. The 1912 Grodno Gubernia
(Russia) voters list includes the name of the voter, his father’s given name, and the district and sometimes town where the voter lived. In Australia and New Zealand electoral rolls usually list the names of the voters, residences, and occupations.

Lists of voters are sometimes published in newspapers. See “Newspapers” in this outline. Information about Jewish voters from limited voting registers can also be found on the Internet. A web site that contains some searchable databases listing Jewish voters is:

The Family History Library has some voting registers. Check for these records in the FamilySearch Catalog for the area where your ancestors lived.
