The complete Information Kit (191 Kb) is available for viewing in PDF.
The Information Kit provides a range of information relating to the 2011 Electoral Distribution. The purpose of the document is to provide information to people who may be interested in the electoral boundary distribution process. Included in the kit is information about the process, how to make a submission, data to assist in making a submission and an overview of current boundaries from the 2007 Electoral Distribution.
The final boundaries determined in the 2011 Electoral Distribution will only be applied from the next State general election, which is due to take place in 2013. As such, the boundaries determined in the 2007 Electoral Distribution are still current and will apply to any by-elections that may occur in the meantime.
Reports and further information can be found in the sections below.
