Australia goes to the polls on 18 May 2019, marking the end of two terms of the federal Abbott-Turnbull-Morrison Coalition government. This election is for all 151 seats in the House of Representatives and half of the 76 senate seats.
Due to changes in Victoria’s population since the last election, the boundaries of both Corio and Corangamite were redrawn in 2018. These changes make both seats more marginal than they were in 2016. The seat of Corangamite is now the most marginal government-held seat in the country, however Corio is still a fairly safe Labor seat.
In the senate, all twelve Victorian senators were elected in the 2016 double-dissolution. Six of these twelve senators are up for election this time, while the term of the remaining six will continue until 2022. See which senators are up for election here.
