Victorian election 2018: Seat of the day - Frankston

Marginal
Labor 0.5%

Frankston is an electorate located in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and includes the suburbs of Frankston and Frankston South. It is currently the most marginal seat in Victoria and will be a top tier target for both of the major parties.

The seat is a classic example of a bellwether seat, usually held by whichever party is in government. 

The demographics of the electorate is what can be considered skilled working-class. Most who reside here are Australian born and English-speaking and are irreligious. Most have either completed year 12 or hold a trade certificate, with those having university degrees falling well below the state average.
