Guide for next Saturday’s Tasmanian upper house elections

May 1, 2022 - 10:00 -- Admin

Tasmania’s upper house holds elections every year in May, with two or three out of the 15 electorates up for election each year, over a six year cycle.

Two seats were due to hold elections next Saturday, May 7, those being Elwick in the northern suburbs of Hobart and McIntyre in north-eastern Tasmania. A third seat will hold a by-election, in the southern seat of Huon. Former Labor member Bastian Seidel vacated the seat in December last year.

I won’t be covering the results on election night (maybe Kevin Bonham will), but I have written guides for all three seats. You can read them here.
