Description"A very full set of records has been preserved. These include a complete run of minutes books, a great deal of uncatalogued correspondence (with members of the Society) on elections and other matters, reports, submissions to Parliament, press-cuttings and pamphlet material. The House of Lords has microfilms of certain of the more important material. It should be noted that the Society also has papers of individuals associated with electoral reform (e.g. J. F. S. Ross) as well as significant non-manuscript material." (C. Cook, The Routledge Guide to British Political Archives, 2006)
