About the Baldivis Electorate

Number of Electors: 24,065 (9 March 2015)
Source: Western Australian Electoral Commission. State Electorate Information.
Nomenclature: This suburb was one of the State Government's Group Settlement schemes which was implemented in the 1920s to alleviate unemployment. A school building was completed and was given the name 'Baldivis' - a name coined by local settlers after three ships that brought them to WA in 1922, the 'Balranald', the 'Diogenes' and the 'Jervis Bay'. The most coincidental item is that all three ships were built in the same place and in the same year. Also, all of the vessels made their maiden voyage to WA within six weeks of each other.
