Redistribution – Brisbane 2020

The City of Brisbane’s electoral boundaries were redrawn following the 2016 election. These changes were relatively mild since it had only been four years since the previous redistribution.

About 8% of the city’s population has been shifted to a different ward, and one ward has flipped from one party to another. The ward of Doboy has shifted from a 4.3% LNP margin to a 0.3% Labor margin.

This table shows how these boundaries change the margins in the Brisbane City Council wards.
