Hannans was an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of Western Australia from 1901 to 1956.

The district was located in the Goldfields-Esperance region, and was based in the city of Kalgoorlie and surrounding mining districts, and was one of several districts created for the 1901 election at the 1899 redistribution. While the mostly immigrant population had been in the area for some time, they only got the right to vote at the election due to changes in the electoral law which modified residency requirements.

The seat was at all times held by the Labor Party. It was abolished before the 1956 election in a redistribution, and its area was split between the Kalgoorlie and Boulder electorates.
