  1. Being able to browse the Electoral Registers is highly useful. If you know roughly where in a constituency someone lived (you hope), it's a moot point whether it's faster to use the browse or the search that hasn't parsed the names so can't distinguish "Catherine" the street from "Catherine" the name. And the downloads are .JPGs rather than .PDFs.

    PS I'm not sure I could have worked out how to parse the different formats of the registers - it's a case of Murphy's Law, not incompetence.
    PPS Unfashionable it may be to admit it - I'd have paid for this collection, though I'm blowed if I can see how to charge for it other than a simple subs.
