To ensure the number of electors within each district and region remains approximately the same over time, State electoral boundaries must be adjusted. This formal process is called a ‘redivision’, and must take place after every second Victorian State general election.
The 2020-21 State electoral boundary redivision concluded on 28 October 2021. A report on the final boundaries is now available.See final boundaries
