Remote polling

Boxes in this style were designed to be carried by camel to remote polling places around the state.

This particular box was used in Pimba, a small settlement located on the transcontinental railway line approximately 500 kilometres from Adelaide. Pimba was in the electoral district of Flinders when this ballot box was used.
