For immediate release
New electoral boundaries will affect approximately 21% of voters at the 2022 State election.
The new boundaries are the result of the State redivision conducted in 2021 by the Electoral Boundaries Commission (EBC), in a consultative process that invited submissions from the public, political parties and any interested groups. This was the first redivision of both Houses of Parliament since 2013.
‘The VEC has updated the register of electors with the new district and region boundary changes,’ Electoral Commissioner Warwick Gately AM said. Voters are now able to check whether their electorates are changing using Check my enrolment.
The changes formally come into effect on Tuesday 1 November, when the writs for the 2022 State election are issued.
Voters can sign up on vec.vic.gov.au to the free VoterAlert service to receive email and SMS notifications about the boundaries and other key election events.
A comparison of new and old boundaries can be viewed on the EBC interactive map at maps.ebc.vic.gov.au
