Various election ephemera

The State Library seeks to collect printed material including ephemera and news, to record the history of every election associated with NSW for researchers in the future. Each election covers a variety of endeavours including policy announcements and debate, a range of personalities, and discussion of issues.

The State Library's election ephemera collection captures the drama of elections and we need your help to ensure we build a comprehensive collection.

Please send us: 

  • How to vote leaflets
  • Posters
  • Flyers and brochures
  • Badges
  • Stickers
  • Mailouts
