The current incarnation of the Shepparton electorate was always a safe Nationals seat. However, in recent elections, third parties (particularly the Country Alliance) and independents posed an increasing threat to the Nationals hold on the seat. Suzanna Sheed won the seat at the 2014 State Election, ending the Nationals hold on the seat.
