Federal electoral divisions in Tasmania formalised

Updated: 14 November 2017

The next federal general election will be conducted on new House of Representatives divisions in Tasmania after a notice was today published in the Commonwealth Government Notices Gazette.

Individual division profile maps and geospatial data for the new federal electoral divisions are now available.

More detailed division maps and the final redistribution report will be available after the material has been tabled in both houses of parliament by the Special Minister of State.

Editor’s notes:

  • People on the electoral roll that are affected by the redistribution will now be automatically moved into their new federal electoral division. No action is necessary.
  • While the new names and boundaries of federal electoral divisions will be in place from Tuesday 14 November 2017, federal elections will not be contested on these new electoral divisions until a writ is issued for a general election following the expiry or dissolution of the House of Representatives.
