The Electoral district of Broadmeadows is an electorate of the Victorian Legislative Assembly created in 1955. The seat is currently based on the suburbs of Broadmeadows, Campbellfield, Coolaroo, Dallas and Jacana. Also contains parts of Fawkner, Glenroy, Hadfield, Roxburgh Park, Somerton and Westmeadows.

From 1993 to 2011, the district was represented by John Brumby, the former Premier of Victoria. As of the 2010 state election, it was the safest Labor seat in Victoria. He retired from parliament shortly after the election, sparking a Broadmeadows by-election, held 19 February 2011, at which Frank McGuire was elected.
