NSW State Elections History

 

The first NSW Legislative Assembly Election was the 1856 NSW Colonial Election, which saw a first-past-the-post system elect all 54 seats of the assembly. Stuart Donaldson assumed the premiership. Polling days ran from 11 March to 19 April 1856. The 58th election will contain 93 seats in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly.

 

Terms of office for the current 93 seats of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly last for four years. The quadrennial elections are held on the fourth Saturday in March. The 2015 victor, the Liberal/National Coalition, was helmed by Mike Baird, who stepped down as Premier in 2017, allowing current incumbent Gladys Berejiklian to take his place.

 

 

NSW State Elections Format

 

NSW imposes compulsory voting, with preferential voting for the lower house and proportional representation in the upper house. Since 1944, the two major parties have been the Labor Party and the Liberal Party, while the Liberal/National Coalition and the Labor Party have led the two-party state elections since 1978, alternating the majority in the assembly. In 2011, the Greens gained their first seat and have gained seats with no party leader in every election since.
