Make a submission

Stage one submissions must be received by 5 pm on Monday 1 March 2021. Late submissions cannot be accepted.

We want to know where you think the electoral boundaries should be and why. Your submission can cover the whole State, or a few areas you’re interested in. You can also propose new names for electorates.

Any person or organisation can make a submission. At the last redivision in 2012–13, we heard from political parties, local councils and members of the public.

In addition to data and statistics, submissions provide invaluable local knowledge. They give us a more holistic view of Victoria’s regions and districts and help us to craft electoral boundaries in the best interests of our communities.

There are two opportunities to make submissions:

Stage one

  • opens 16 December 2020
  • closes 5 pm on 1 March 2021.

Stage two

  • opens 30 June 2021
  • closes 5 pm on 30 July 2021.

To help in putting together a submission, we publish a range of electoral data and statistics. For more information, visit the Resources page.

We also run public hearings as part of the consultation process. For more information, visit the Public hearings page.

We consider all submissions received by the deadline in terms of the criteria in the Act. Late submissions cannot be accepted.
