Electoral district of Seymour
|Area||6,022 km2 (2,325.1 sq mi)|
Seymour was an electoral district of the Victorian Legislative Assembly. It covered rural territory just north of Melbourne, including the towns of Alexandra, Healesville, Kinglake, Marysville, Seymour and Yea.
It was created at the redistribution prior to the 1992 election where it was comfortably won by the Liberal's Marie Tehan who represented the comparable Legislative Council seat of Central Highlands Province from 1987 to 1992.
The seat recorded a 6.8% swing to the Australian Labor Party at the 1996 election before being narrowly and surprisingly won by Labor's Ben Hardman due to the anti-Kennett rural backlash at 1999 election. Hardman extended his majority to 9.5% at the 2002 election and was re-elected at the 2006 election, but he was defeated by Liberal candidate Cindy McLeish at the 2010 election.
