Abstract

After each State election in South Australia, an Electoral Districts Boundaries Commission is required to examine State electorates with a view to redistribution. In deciding whether boundaries need to be amended, the Commission is required to take into account many factors, including 'as far as practicable' making sure that the boundaries are fair to all parties. This paper is about the process by which the boundaries are judged to be fair. [Introduction]
