Election 2015 : we need your help again

It’s election time again and once again we need your help to ensure we have a comprehensive collection of election ephemera.

State Library has significant collections of ephemera.  This material, which is generally regarded by most of us as transient or “throw away” items, provides a unique perspective into Queensland’s social life, popular culture and political viewpoints.

Political ephemera is an area of particular interest.  The 2015 State Election has been called for 31 January 2015 and we are very keen to receive any items such as:

  • How to vote cards
  • Posters
  • Flyers
  • Placards
  • Stickers
  • T shirts
  • Magnets
  • Mail outs

Our SLQ staff are always a great help in collecting ephemera from the Brisbane area, but we particularly need your help once again to collect regional material.  So, if you live outside of Brisbane please take a how to vote card for every candidate and send them to us.

Any election material to add to our collection can be forwarded to:

The State Library, and all Queenslanders present and future, thank you for your assistance.
