Guide for next Saturday’s Tasmanian upper house elections


Tasmania’s upper house holds elections every year in May, with two or three out of the 15 electorates up for election each year, over a six year cycle.

Two seats were due to hold elections next Saturday, May 7, those being Elwick in the northern suburbs of Hobart and McIntyre in north-eastern Tasmania. A third seat will hold a by-election, in the southern seat of Huon. Former Labor member Bastian Seidel vacated the seat in December last year.

I won’t be covering the results on election night (maybe Kevin Bonham will), but I have written guides for all three seats. You can read them here.
