Norm Wyndham, since 2004.
Northern Brisbane. McDowall covers the suburbs of Bridgeman Downs, Everton Park and McDowall, and parts of Aspley, Chermside West and Stafford.
McDowall maintained all of its existing territory and gained small parts of Bracken Ridge and Marchant. These changes had no impact on the margin.
McDowall was won in 2000 by Labor candidate Rita Collins by a slim 1.1% margin.
In 2004, Collins lost to Liberal candidate Norm Wyndham by a 4.1% margin.
Wyndham was re-elected in 2008 with a 12.6% margin and again in 2012 with a 23.4% margin.
McDowall was a marginal seat at the peak of Labor support in the year 2000, but in most years is likely to stay with the LNP.
