Electoral boundaries may change before state election

THE boundaries of Ballina and Lismore electorates could change under a proposed redistribution of NSW electoral boundaries before the March 2015 state election.

The proposed boundary redistribution, the first in NSW since 2004, is aimed at having an equal number of enrolled voters in each electorate.

Under the proposal, towns previously in the Lismore electorate including Federal, Eureka and Goonengerry will be part of Ballina electorate as the boundary will shift west.

The move west continues with Tenterfield to be included in the proposed boundary redistribution in the Lismore electorate.

The public will have 30 days to lodge comments on the new boundaries before suggestions are considered by the Office of the Electoral Districts Commissioners.

The new boundaries, if implemented, will take effect at the March 2015 state election.
