The 2012-2013 redivision of State electoral boundaries has commenced. The redivision is being held as there have been two general elections since the previous redivision.
The redivision will consider the boundaries of Victoria's electoral regions and districts established by past redivisions. The redivision will redraw electoral boundaries to ensure that each vote in Victorian State elections has an equal value and that each elector is represented equally in the Victorian Parliament.
The redivision is conducted by the Electoral Boundaries Commission (EBC).
