The elastic electron scattering form factors, longitudinal and transverse, from the He and Li isotopes and from 8B have been studied. Large space shell model functions have been assumed. The precise distribution of the neutron excess has little effect on the form factors of the isotopes though there is a mass dependence in the charge densities. However, the form factors of the proton-rich nucleus, 8B, are significantly changed by the presence of the proton halo.
