Labor held the seat from 1999 to 2014, when it was regained by the Liberal Party after the prior redistribution turned it into a notional Liberal seat. Before 1999, the seat was held by the Liberal Party uninterrupted for more than 20 years.

The area constituting this electorate is known for agriculture, wine making, timber industries, manufacturing, wool production, paper milling, knitting mills and tourism

Political Party: Liberal (Incumbent MP)

Louise Staley has been the MP for Ripon since the 2014 State Election. She attended Melbourne University where she studied economics and then went on to work as a fund manager for a large superannuation and life insurance company. Before her election, she served as President of the East Grampians Health Service, was a director of the Grampians Medicare Local and also a director of Networking Health Victoria. Louise was also Director of the Food and Environment Unit at the Institute of Public Affairs. She lives in Ararat.

Assessment:

Ripon was a gain for the Liberal Party in 2014, breaking a 15 year run in which the seat was held by Labor, after the preceding redistribution turned it into a notional Liberal seat. It is, still, a very marginal seat that could go either way in 2018, especially if it is presumed that the Nationals won't run a candidate. Louise Staley should, however, benefit from a new personal vote.
