Bristol Record Archives
You can use White Pages to preview electoral roll records from 2002 onwards.
The electoral roll contains the names and addresses of all registered voters in the UK and there are two versions, the full and the edited version. From 2003 onwards, voters could choose to have their details omitted from the edited version of the electoral roll. However their name and address will still be included in the full electoral register. This is why the electoral roll has become an important tool for researching the whereabouts of lost friends and relatives.
White Pages previews edited electoral register results from 2003 onwards due to changes in government legislation. However, the full Bristol electoral register, current and historical, is available to view offline at:

Many of Bristol's records are viewable on microfilm and are available on a self-service basis. Alternatively, you may use one of the computers to access archived census records, free of charge.
