Welcome to the Electoral Boundaries Commission

The Electoral Boundaries Commission (EBC) is an independent statutory body constituted under the Electoral Boundaries Commission Act 1982 (external link)

Its role is to divide Victoria into electoral regions for the State's Legislative Council (Upper House) and electoral districts for the Legislative Assembly (Lower House).

To ensure each vote in Victorian State elections has equal value and each elector is represented equally in Parliament, the EBC must establish and maintain electorates of approximately equal enrolment. This is defined as not varying by more than 10% from the average enrolment per seat for each House.

The EBC is composed of independent and impartial officeholders, and is not responsible to any Minister or Government.
