Elections for both Houses of the Parliament of New South Wales are held on the fourth Saturday in March every four years. The fixed parliamentary term is set out in the New South Wales Constitution Act 1902 (the New South Wales Constitution). Voters vote for each of the two Houses of Parliament and each has a different electoral arrangement and method of election.
The State of New South Wales is divided into 93 Legislative Assembly electoral districts. Each electoral district is represented in Parliament by a Member of the Legislative Assembly.

We acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which the Parliament of New South Wales stands.
