About the electorate of Lee

Lee is an electoral district of the House of Assembly in the South Australian Parliament. Named after the women's suffrage campaigner Mary Lee, it is a 18.9 km² urban electorate on Adelaide's north-western beaches, taking in the suburbs of Grange, Royal Park, Seaton, Semaphore Park, Tennyson, West Lakes, and West Lakes Shore.

Lee was created in the 1991 electoral distribution to replace the abolished seat of Albert Park and absorbed half of the abolished seat of Semaphore.

The first member for Lee, elected at the 1993 election, was Liberal MP Joe Rossi, holding the most marginal government seat on 1.1 percent.

The 1997 election saw Michael Wright claimed the seat for Labor and hold the seat until the 2014 election.

Stephen Mullighan retained the seat at 2014 election for the Labor Party.

Following this election, the Electoral Boundaries Commission dramatically redraw the boundaries of the seat, seeing the suburbs of Largs Bay, Semaphore, Semaphore South, Birkenhead, Exeter, Ethelton, Glanville, Peterhead and New Port move into neighbouring Port Adelaide. The redraw also saw the remainder of Seaton and the suburbs of Grange and Royal Park move into Lee from Colton and Cheltenham respectively.

Stephen Mullighan again won the seat at the 2018 election.
