Hi Carol
Don't be so hard on yourself the SEC is a Government office... so your not wrong :-)
Up until recently electoral rolls could only be accessed at the head offices in capital cities... which was a pain and so glad it's changed.
Main librarys in capital cities generally hold the electoral rolls on microfiche.
It's my understanding the Ancestry only have Australian electoral rolls up to 1936.
Cheers Gerry

Current electoral rolls can now be accessed by the general public at any State Electoral Commission office.
All States and Territories can be checked as all you do is type in the name and choose a State/Territory.

Hope this helps.
