Past elections

The Commission has results and publications for all State electoral events available electronically from the 1993 State election, including by-elections.

A by-election is held when an elected Member of the Legislative Assembly vacates their seat for any reason (e.g. resignation) which is not due to the expiration or dissolution of Parliament. The affected electorate then votes to elect a new member.

If a vacancy arises in the Legislative Council, a recount of votes cast at the previous general election is held in order to fill the vacancy. If no consenting qualified candidates who contested the previous election in that region are available, a fresh election must be held.
