This report provides the Redistribution Committee for the Australian Capital Territory’s (the Redistribution Committee) proposed redistribution of the Australian Capital Territory into three electoral divisions. It is proposed that:
- the Australian Capital Territory be divided into three electoral divisions – a northern, central and southern electoral division,
- ‘Canberra’ and ‘Fenner’ be retained as the names of electoral divisions in the Australian Capital Territory, and
- ‘Bean’ be the name of an electoral division to recognise Charles Edwin Woodrow Bean.
This proposal is made available for public discussion and for appropriate modifications or adjustment by the augmented Electoral Commission for the Australian Capital Territory (the augmented Electoral Commission) through the objections and comments on objections process (and inquiry process, if required). The augmented Electoral Commission will finalise the names and boundaries of electoral divisions after carefully considering objections and comments on objections (and oral submissions presented at any inquiry which may be held).
