The intensive mapping phase of the redistribution is underway, and will be followed by the release of the Proposed Electoral Boundaries Report.
The Commission hasn’t set an official date for the release of its proposal. The Electoral Act 1992 does not provide a specific timeframe for this period, but past reviews have generally taken between 4 – 5 months from the close of the Comments on the Suggestions. We anticipate this review to take a similar time, therefore bringing the release date into the New Year.
Following the release of its proposal, the Commission will then follow legislated timeframes for inviting objections to the proposal, comments on the objections and releasing the Final Determination for Queensland’s Electoral Boundaries.
