Thereís two different ER record sets on FindMyPast -

One titled England & Wales, Electoral Registers 1832-1932 which isnít indexed in the usual way as itís done from OCR from what I understand.  So if you search for William Coulson you might get results where one line has Coulson and the line above or below has William, or where the address is Coulson Terrace.  Sometimes you need to view lots of results to find the right people you are looking for.  The link for this record set is - https://search.findmypast.co.uk/search-world-Records/england-and-wales-electoral-registers-1920-1932

The other titled England & Wales, Electoral Registers 1920-1932 which is fully indexed but currently only covers the years 1920, 1926 Ė 1931 and partial records for 1932.  The link for this record set is - https://search.findmypast.co.uk/search-world-Records/england-and-wales-electoral-registers-1920-1932

Here's some of the stuff I found yesterday

1915 ER for William Coulson at Monkton

https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=BL/ER/D19/FMP000002751/1169&parentid=BL/ER/D19/FMP000002751/1169

Spring 1920 William, Jane and Frederick Coulson at Monkton

https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=bl/er/d1/fmp000002174/0313&parentid=bl/er/d1/fmp000002174/0313

Spring 1923 for Jane, Henry and Frederick at 54 Jutland Avenue and the other Coulson's at 7 Station Road, 29 Aln Street and 66 Campbell Street.

https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=BL/ER/D10/FMP000002756/0242&parentid=BL/ER/D10/FMP000002756/0242

Some of these results wonít relate to your Coulsonís so youíll have to look at them to see which are relevant.

From what I've gathered very few women could vote before 1918.  Between 1918 and 1928 only women over 30 who were householders or married to householders could vote.  After 1918 all women over 21 could vote.

Freddy's sister born 1908 would most likely first appear on the ER for 1930.

Thank you for the detailed explanations. That explains everything that I observed yesterday.
I will examine the records straight after this post.

Sounds like going through the OCR version is as much art as it is science.

Interesting how the right for women to vote did not spring suddenly into existence as we might think but was a lumbering process across many years.

Just to be clear, Jay, should your second sentence be 'After 1928...'  ?
Am guessing that is a typo.

Uh oh... Can't view the ER records in FindMyPast without a paid subscription plan.

Is there more to be gleaned than the facts you have given already in your previous posts?

If voting was not compulsory you may find that many women didn't bother to enrol even if they qualified to do so.

Yes sorry that is a typo and should be after 1928.
