Electoral registers are lists of voters able to vote in parliamentary and local government elections. They are arranged by constituency and divided into polling districts. Electoral registration was introduced by the Reform Act of 1832 and, since then, registers have been compiled annually with the exception of the years 1916, 1917 and 1940 to 1944. The original Act directed parish overseers to prepare the electoral registers which were compiled from returns. Rules for who was allowed to vote were defined in the various Representation of the People Acts significant amongst which were the Acts of 1918 (all men over 21 and women over 30 allowed to vote), 1928 (women over 21) and 1969 (voting age reduced to 18).


This collection of Electoral Registers for Hampton Wick includes the Overseers' Returns from 1847 - 1882 (complete with their handwritten corrections and deletions) together with the actual registers from 1883 - 1899 and from 1945 - 2000. The image quality of some of the post-WWII registers is marginal.
