The Electoral District of Cranbourne is an electoral district of the Victorian Legislative Assembly. It is located south-east of Melbourne and includes the suburbs of Cranbourne, Carrum Downs, Langwarrin, Seaford, Skye, and Frankston North. It was created prior to the 1992 state election.
Cranbourne has been held by Jude Perera of the Labor Party since 2002, with a two-party preferred margin of 2.3% at the 2014 state election. However, from 1992 to the 2002 election the seat was held by the Liberal Party, albeit with different boundaries that were more favourable to the Liberals. Additionally, the Victorian State Liberals suffered a statewide swing against them that saw them lose two thirds of their seats at the 2002 state election.
Perera re-contested the seat at the 2006 election, and defeated Luke Martin of the Liberal Party. Perera held the seat again in 2010, holding off a challenge from ex-VFL player and brother of Gary Ablett Sr., Geoff Ablett.
