What are electoral boundaries?

Electoral boundaries are changing

Victoria's electoral boundaries are going to change for November's State election. This means that you may be enrolled in and need to vote for a new district or region, even if your address has not changed.

These changes come into effect on Tuesday 1 November, but you can see the new boundaries now.

Search your address below. It's best if you enter a full address rather than a general suburb, because parts of some suburbs may be in different electorates.
