Absent Voters' List

AVL Registration CardThe Representation of the People Act, passed by Parliament on 6 February 1918, allowed servicemen over the age of 21 serving away from home to register in order to obtain a vote in the constituency of their home address. The first lists were published on 15 October 1918 from details supplied by the men themselves before the closing date for applications of 18 August 1918. Note that any servicemen under the qualifying age do not appear in the register.

The 1918 Absent Voters' List for Woodchurch contains 89 names, which are transcribed here directly from an original bound copy held at the Centre for Kentish Studies, Maidstone, Kent. The original contains a number of errors (e.g. 'Havlackenden' rather than 'Harlackenden') which remain uncorrected in this online version.

If you need any help with the abbreviations of military units, please contact me.
