Tony Robinson (ALP-Mitcham) 1997 By-Election How-To-Vote Card

This is the how-to-card issued by the ALP candidate for the Mitcham by-election in 1997.

The by-election for the Victorian Legislative Assembly seat was an early indication of the demise of the Kennett government in 1999. In a large field of 17 candidates, the ALP’s Tony Robinson won the seat. It had previously been held by Roger Pescott for the Liberal Party.

Robinson was re-elected in 1999, 2002 and 2006. He served as a minister in the Bracks and Brumby governments and was defeated in the 2010 election.
