The Electoral district of Ringwood is an electoral district of the Victorian Legislative Assembly. It was first proclaimed in 1958 and was abolished in 1992. The electorate was located to the east of Melbourne and centred on the suburb of Ringwood, after which it is named.
Parts of Ringwood were included in the new Electoral district of Bayswater in 1992. Kay Setches, the last member for Ringwood, contested and lost Bayswater at the election that year.
Ringwood was created again at the 2013 redistribution of electoral boundaries that will take effect at the 2014 state election. The new district largely replaces the abolished district of Mitcham, covering suburbs along the Maroondah Highway from Nunawading to Ringwood.
The abolished district of Mitcham is held by Liberal MP Dee Ryall. Ringwood is estimated to have a Liberal margin of 6.3% by results of the 2010 election.
