Next Australian Federal Election

Welcome to the Tally Room’s complete guide to the next Australian federal election. This guide includes comprehensive coverage of each seat’s history, geography, political situation and results of the 2016 election, as well as maps and tables showing those results.

On this page you can find links to each individual profile for each House of Representatives electorate and the Senate race in the six states and the two territories, as well as pages with information about key seats, the redistribution and frequently asked questions.

This election guide has been a big project over many months. If you appreciate this work please consider signing up as a patron of this website via Patreon to help me take time off to write these guides and the rest of this website.
