We are fortunate to hold copies of a number of twentieth century Electoral Registers for Buckland Brewer. These record all those eligible to vote, together with their addresses. Those that we have date from 1914-1963 and in our collection there is at least one example for every decade. Of course all those on the lists are over 21, as the age was not lowered to 18 until 1969. The earliest lists only include men, as women did not get the vote until 1918 and then not on the same terms as men. Full equality came in 1928.
