Distribution of GANDER 
& GANDAR, adults on Electoral Roll for England, Scotland & Wales, 2002.

The 2002 Electoral Rolls for England, Wales & Scotland was probably the last comprehensive ones produced that can be publicly viewed. Changes in the law now means there are in effect 2 sets of Electoral Rolls around, as people can now opt out of having their names on a public list which in the past, often got mis-used for commercial purposes.

Whereas the 2003 Electoral Rolls showed only some 800 plus GANDER and GANDAR voters, the 2002 Electoral Rolls returned 1200 GANDER voters and another 29 with the GANDAR spelling, which is about what I expected.

To state the obvious, these are adults over 18 years of age and whilst there will inevitably be some who've not registered to vote, the list I'm sure contains some duplicates, so this probably evens things out.

What the map to the right shows clearly is that Sussex remains the the mostly densely populated county for GANDERs with more GANDERs in Brighton than anywhere else.

The table below breaks the numbers down - I know, I should get out more...
