Richmond is a provincial electoral riding in the Estrie region of Quebec, Canada, which elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. It includes the Rock Forest–Saint-Élie–Deauville borough of Sherbrooke and the cities or municipalities of Richmond, Asbestos, and Danville.

It was created for the 1890 election from a part of the Richmond-Wolfe electoral district.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, its territory was altered substantially. It lost most of its northern half, primarily to the new Drummond–Bois-Francs electoral district, and expanded southward to include a part of the city of Sherbrooke.
