What does one vote, one value mean?
The notion of one vote, one value is that each Member of Parliament represents, and is elected by, a comparable number of electors.
In Western Australia this means that Legislative Assembly districts would have boundaries distributed on the basis that every district would have an equal number of electors (+ or - 10%).
In some cases legislation may provide for exceptions to give separate consideration to remote and regional areas. Electoral boundary Distribution legislation in Western Australia has provided for allowances to be made for some districts in remote and regional areas of Western Australia to have fewer electors than other districts in the State.
One vote, one value legislation does not currently apply in the Legislative Council. Each region is made up of the number of complete districts within its boundaries irrespective of the total number of electors in the region.
