Australian Electoral Roll tag types

Another discussion on the mailing list a couple of months ago was about electoral rolls. Here are some examples:

Carole Riley‘s electoral roll tag is one-size-fits-all with the details of the division/district/etc in the memo field:

[P] <was|and [PO] were> listed on the <[M1]> electoral roll <with  occupation [M2]> <[D]> <[L]>

Kay Sturgeon‘s electoral roll tag:

[:CR:][:CR:][P] <was|and [PO] were>registered<[D]> [M1] Electoral Roll <[L]> ; [M2]

Joseph Cooten Tucker was registered in 1903 Division of Wide Bay, Subdivision Drummer’s Creek Electoral Roll in Cambria Flat, QLD, Australia; occupation miner.

As a married man:

Joseph Cooten Tucker and Eva Lillian Tucker were registered in 1913 Division of Lilley, Subdivision Enoggera Electoral Roll in Alice Street, Newmarket, QLD, Australia; occupations Railway Employee and Home Duties.

The added extra I have done is to create a reminder memo under the Other tab as under which shows me exactly how I should be entering the information up to keep it consistent and showing the source numbers for each state which have different repositories.  I just copy paste Division and Subdivision sometimes it changes to Ward or District.

[:CR:][:CR:][P] <was|and [PO] were>registered<[D]> [M1] Electoral Roll <[L]> ; [M2]
Division of   , Subdivision of   || occupation/s
ACT   177
NSW 120
QLD  167
VIC    85
WA   122

Jonathan Auld gave two examples with separate male and female sentence structures:

NSW(1901-54)

[P] is listed on the electoral roll of [D] in the State of [STATE], District
of [COUNTY] and Subdistrict of [CITY]. His address was [DETAIL].< His
occupation is listed as [M].>

[P] is listed on the electoral roll of [D] in the State of [STATE], District
of [COUNTY] and Subdistrict of [CITY]. Her address was [DETAIL].< Her
occupation is listed as [M].>

NSW(1842-64)

[P] is listed on the electoral roll of [D] in the State of [STATE], District
of [COUNTY] and Ward of [CITY].< His address was [DETAIL].>< His occupation
is listed as [M].>

[P] is listed on the electoral roll of [D] in the State of [STATE], District
of [COUNTY] and Subdistrict of [CITY].< Her address was [DETAIL].>< Her
occupation is listed as [M].>

Apart from the default Principal and Witness roles, I also have a
VIC(1856-1936) and WA(1903-54) as the VIC & WA rolls are the ones I have
been using most frequently.
