Electoral district of Merredin
Western Australia—Legislative Assembly
|1 known as Merredin-Yilgarn 1950–1977|
Merredin was abolished in 2008 as a result of the reduction in rural seats made necessary by the one vote one value reforms. Its former territory was largely incorporated into the new seat of Central Wheatbelt, with parts also added to the districts of Moore and Wagin.
At various times, Merredin was held by all three of the major parties. The district was held by the Labor Party for all but three of its first 24 years. In its final decades however, the seat had become very safe for the National Party.
