Division of Burt
Australian House of Representatives Division
|Namesake||Burt family of Western Australia|
|Area||172 km2 (66.4 sq mi)|
The division was created in 2015 and was named after the Burt family, specifically Sir Archibald Burt, Septimus Burt and Sir Francis Burt. The division is located in the south-eastern suburbs of Perth and covers areas that had previously been represented by the divisions of Canning, Hasluck and Tangney.
The seat was first contested at the 2016 federal election. Based on the results from the 2013 federal election the division was created as a notionally fairly safe Liberal with a notional two-party preferred margin of 6.1 percent. However, based on federal polling indicating a large nine percent two-party swing to Labor since the last election, Burt was tipped as one of several seats that could have potentially fallen to Labor at the 2016 federal election. Additionally, much of the seat's territory is represented by Labor at state level.
