Unfortunately the Leeds AVL has now been removed from the Leeds City Council website after it was modernised/reorganised. It's still available to look at in the reference/local history section at the main Leeds Central Library.

Hi all,
Absent Voter Lists are new to me and I was wondering where, if they exist, the list related to Bridge of Allan, Scotland would be?

Many thanks,
Andy
