Electoral district of Lismore
According to the report for the 2004 redistribution of electoral districts, it is estimated that the electoral district will have 47,338 electors on 29 April 2007. At the 2007 election it will include almost all of the City of Lismore (including Lismore, Nimbin, Dunoon and Clunes), a small part of Byron Shire (including Federal), much of inland Tweed Shire (including Murwillumbah, Tyalgum and Uki), a small part of Richmond Valley Council (including Bentley), all of Kyogle Council (including Kyogle, Bonalbo, Tabulam and Woodenbong) and some of Tenterfield Shire (including Liston and Legume).
Lismore was first created with the end of multi-member districts in 1894, when it was split from Richmond. In 1904, it was abolished with the reduction in the size of the Legislative Assembly, after Federation. In 1913, Lismore was recreated, replacing Richmond. With the introduction of proportional representation in 1920, Lismore and Clarence were absorbed into Byron. With the end of proportional representation in 1927, Lismore and Clarence were recreated.
