Absent voters in the Miscellaneous Names Index

From 1918 separate registers were kept of anyone who had applied to vote by post or proxy. The majority of entries are for members of the armed forces, and the registers give their regiment, ship etc. as well as their rank and number. All surviving Hertfordshire registers held at Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies have been indexed by name: 1918-1931 (missing St Albans and Hitchin divisions for 1923, and all divisions except St Albans for 1929). The index gives names and places, view the original or order a copy to see the details.
