New Divisions?

Why?  As people move from place to place, Tasmania’s Legislative Council boundaries are reviewed every 9 years, under the Legislative Council Electoral Boundaries Act 1995, to preserve the notion of ‘one vote one value’ in the Legislative Council.

What?  The 2018 elections will elect 2 members - one each in the new divisions of Hobart and Prosser. The terms of office are for 6 years.

When?  On 5 August 2017, new Legislative Council electoral boundaries came into effect due to the completion of the 2016-17 Legislative Council Electoral Boundaries Redistribution process. The allocation and terms of office of current members can be found here.
