Updated: 2 November 2016

In accordance with section 65 of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918, the Electoral Commissioner has determined the current enrolment quota for the purposes of the redistribution of Tasmania to be 75 014.

The determination of the current enrolment quota for the redistribution of Tasmania was based on enrolment numbers as at 1 September 2016, which is the date the redistribution commenced.

The quota was calculated by dividing the number of electors on the electoral roll in Tasmania on the day the redistribution commences by the number of members to which Tasmania is entitled.
