Determination of names and boundaries of federal electoral divisions in

the Australian Capital Territory

 

As determined by the Electoral Commissioner on 31 August 2017, the Australian Capital Territory is entitled to three members of the House of Representatives.

 

Pursuant to sub-section 73(1) of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 (the Electoral Act), the augmented Electoral Commission for the Australian Capital Territory has determined the names of the three electoral divisions are:

·         Bean

·         Canberra

·         Fenner

 

Pursuant to sub-section 73(1) of the Electoral Act, the augmented Electoral Commission for the Australian Capital Territory has determined that the boundaries of these electoral divisions are as shown on the maps displayed on the Australian Electoral Commission website at www.aec.gov.au/Electorates/Redistributions and lodged in file number 18/405 at the National Office of the Australian Electoral Commission in Canberra.

 

The augmented Electoral Commission for the Australian Capital Territory has made decisions in accordance with the requirements of sub-sections 56AA, 73(3), 73(4) and 73(4A) of the Electoral Act.

 

As provided for by sub-section 73(1) of the Electoral Act, and subject to the provisions of the Electoral Act, the electoral divisions determined by this notice will apply from 13 July 2018 until the next determination of names and boundaries of electoral divisions in the Australian Capital Territory is published in the Commonwealth Government Notices Gazette pursuant to sub-section 73(1) or sub-section 76(6) of the Electoral Act.

 

Until the next following expiration or dissolution of the House of Representatives, the redistribution does not affect the election of a new member to fill a vacancy happening in the House of Representatives.
