The Legislative Council

The Legislative Council, or upper house, is one of the two chambers of the Parliament of South Australia. Its purpose is to act as a house of review for legislation passed in the lower house, the House of Assembly.

This ballot box was probably used to conduct Legislative Council elections in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
