Electoral Rolls

What conditions did an individual have to satisfy to qualify for inclusion on an electoral roll?

I have found record of an ancestor included on the electoral roll for Thames (Coromandel)1880/1. This is the earliest reference to him following his immigration I have found. Despite extensive research and generous help from this site, amongst others, I cannot find record of his arrival and I suspect he may well have arrived as an anonymous steerage passenger. I am hoping his inclusion on the electoral roll may give some general indication of the length and extent of his settlemen at that time.
