Electoral districts

At the 2018 State Election, around 400,000 people (or one third of all South Australian electors) moved district, and a further 81,000 electors have not moved but found themselves living in a different electoral district as a result of name changes to seven districts. These changes resulted from a review of district boundaries by the Electoral Districts Boundaries Commission, and took effect on polling day, 17 March 2018. To learn more about districts you can use our interactive map, access downloadable copies of district maps and look at our district profiles.
