The 1927 Victorian state election was held in the Australian state of Victoria on Saturday 9 April 1927 to elect 57 of the 65 members of the state's Legislative Assembly. The other 8 seats were uncontested.

Contents

For the first time, voting for the Legislative Assembly was compulsory. As a consequence, voter turnout in contested seats increased from 59.24% at the 1924 election to 91.76% at the 1927 election, but the informal vote increased from 1.01% in 1924 to 1.94% in 1927.
