The Division of Tasmania was an Australian Electoral Division that existed from 1901 until 1903. It covered the entire state of Tasmania which, unlike most of the other states, had not been split into individual single-member electorates. The Division elected five members at the first federal election, with each elector casting one vote. In 1903, the Division was split into five divisions, each electing a single member.[1]
