Electoral districts across NSW are currently under review.
The 93 electoral districts are being reviewed, and the boundaries redrawn to ensure equal numbers of voters in each district.
This process is called redistribution and is required by legislation to take place after every second NSW State general election. The last redistribution was finalised in 2013, with the resulting boundaries in place for the 2015 and 2019 state elections.
The redistribution process is being administered by an independent three-member panel. Chairperson Justice Arthur Emmett, electoral commissioner John Schmidt, and the surveyor-general Narelle Underwood.
Justice Emmett said over time, voters moved in and out of electoral districts and in and out of New South Wales.
"The voting population of some districts grows and declines in other districts. This can result in uneven numbers of voters across the State's electoral districts," he said.
"Redistribution is integral to the democratic system in New South Wales and ensures the principle of one vote, one value."
A redistribution is a collaborative process involving input from the public, community groups, political participants and other stakeholders.
The panel has invited written suggestions and comments on the distribution of electoral districts.
The suggestions period closed on July 1. The comments period is open until July 15.
