The next Victorian state election will be held on Saturday 24 November 2018 to elect the 59th Parliament of Victoria, including all 88 seats in the Legislative Assembly and all 40 in the Legislative Council. The first-term incumbent Labor government, is led by Premier Daniel Andrews, while the current opposition is the Liberal/National Coalition, led by Opposition Leader Matthew Guy.

Victoria has compulsory voting and uses preferential ballot in single-member seats for the lower house, and single transferable vote in multi-member seats for the proportionally represented upper house. The election will be conducted by the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC). The incumbent government will enter into caretaker mode at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, 30 October 2018, when writs are officially issued.[1]

Date of election[edit]

The election will be for all 88 members of the Legislative Assembly and all 40 members of the Legislative Council. Pursuant to Electoral Act 2002 Victoria has had fixed terms, with all elections since the 2006 election held every 4 years on the last Saturday of November.[2][3] The election will occur on 24 November 2018.[4]

Previous election[edit]

Lower house[edit]

At the 2014 election, Labor won majority government with 47 seats. The Coalition won 38 seats, with the Liberal party winning 30 and the National party winning 8. On the crossbench, the Greens won 2 seats and Independent Suzanna Sheed won the seat of Shepparton.

Upper house[edit]

At the 2014 election, Labor won 14 seats; the Coalition won 16 seats (14 Liberal, 2 National); the Greens won 5 seats; the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party won 2 seats; and the Sex Party (now the Reason Party), Democratic Labour Party, and Vote 1 Local Jobs party won 1 seat each.

Pendulum[edit]

The following Mackerras Pendulum works by lining up all of the seats according to the percentage point margin on a two candidate preferred basis based on the 2014 results.[5] The Australian Electoral Commission considers a seat "safe" if it requires a swing of over 10 per cent to change, "fairly safe" seats require a swing of between 6 and 10 per cent, while "marginal" seats require a swing of less than 6 per cent.[6]

By-elections[edit]

Former Nationals leader Peter Ryan announced his resignation from parliament on 2 February 2015, triggering a by-election in the seat of Gippsland South for 14 March.[7] The election was won by Danny O'Brien of the National Party.

Denis Napthine and Terry Mulder resigned from parliament on 3 September 2015. Their seats were retained by the Liberal Party in by-elections held in South-West Coast and Polwarth on 31 October.

Minister for Women and Minister for the Prevention of Family Violence Fiona Richardson died on 23 August 2017. A by-election was held in the seat of Northcote on 18 November, in which the Victorian Greens won the seat from the Labor Party.

Changes in parliament[edit]

Don Nardella, the former Deputy Speaker of the Assembly and member for the seat of Melton, resigned from the Labor Party on 7 March 2017 to sit as an independent. Nardella's resignation was demanded by Premier Andrews after Nardella refused to pay back approximately $100,000 of taxpayer funded entitlements in the midst an expenses scandal. The resignation reduced the number of Labor members in the Assembly from 47 to 46, still above the 45 seats needed for majority government to be formed. Nardella had previously announced his intention to quit politics at the 2018 election and following his resignation from the Labor Party stated he intended to serve out his full term as the member for Melton.[8]

Russell Northe, the member for Morwell resigned from the National Party on 28 August 2017, due to mental health and financial issues, continuing in his position as an independent.[9]

Greg Barber resigned as Leader of the Greens and from his Northern Metropolitan Region seat on 28 September 2017, being replaced in both by Moreland councillor Samantha Ratnam.[10]

Colleen Hartland resigned from her Western Metropolitan Region seat on 8 February 2018,[11] and was succeeded by Huong Truong.
