The Roe state by-election, 1967 was a by-election held on 2 September 1967 for the Western Australian Legislative Assembly seat of Roe in the southeastern agricultural part of the state.

Contents

The by-election was triggered by the resignation of Country Party member Tom Hart on 6 July 1967.

The seat of Roe, first established in 1950, was considered to be a safe seat for the Country Party. At the time of the by-election, the seat included the towns of Dumbleyung, Gnowangerup, Kondinin, Kulin, Lake Grace, Narembeen and Ravensthorpe.

Candidates

The by-election attracted two candidates. Bill Young, representing the Country Party, was a farmer and party official residing in Kondinin, while Mel Bungey, representing the Liberal and Country League, was a farmer residing in Gnowangerup.

Results

Bill Young easily retained the seat for the Country Party. No swings are noted due to the seat being uncontested at the 1965 election.
