In order to help folks fully research their ballots for the monster Best of the 1980s poll — and due to popular demand over the past few months — we’ve assembled here the full lists of albums that were included on the original ballots for the 1980 through 1989 polls.

One caveat: In nearly every case, an album or two, maybe more, were added after the list had been loaded into the polling app, so this list, while very nearly complete, isn’t quite.
