The Division of Phillipson is a Craftian federal division in the state of Jebsten. It was created in 1986 and was first contested at the inaugural federal election. It is named after George Phillipson, the first Premier of the Province of Craftia (1945–1947). The division covers a large area of the Jebsten Peninsula (mainly the eastern interior).

The sitting member, since the 2064 federal election, is Kate Ralston, a member of the Craftian Conservative Party.

History

While Phillipson has remained a large rural electorate since its creation, it has slowly moved east due to population growth towards the Notchropolis end of the seat. Although created as a fairly safe left-wing seat, it is now regarded as a marginal Conservative seat. The Conservatives, United, the Liberals and the Reform Party have all won the seat semi-recently, making it a unique four-way marginal seat.
