HINDMARSH Shire Council will tell the Electoral Boundaries Commission it wants to stay in Lowan electorate.
Submissions for the redistribution by political parties could see Hindmarsh Shire move out of Lowan and into the Mildura electorate.
Councillors expressed concern about the proposed redistribution at a meeting on Wednesday.
Hindmarsh Shire Mayor Rob Gersch said the proposal was an issue.
"I am not sure what will happen," he said.
"We have great affiliation with the Wimmera and the Lowan electorate and it is our preference to stay.
"We certainly have a common goal with people in the Wimmera and work closely with other councils around and we hope to stay that way."
There are currently two submissions affecting Hindmarsh Shire - one would see the entire shire moved out of Lowan and the other would see the towns of Rainbow and Jeparit move to the Mildura electorate.
Hindmarsh chief executive Dean Miller said council needed to think about what was best for the shire.
"If we were split over two electorates, we would have two local members looking after us," he said.
"It might not be a bad thing."
Cr Tony Schneider expressed his concerns about being divided.
"With every issue we would have to make two submissions," he said.
Cr Ron Lowe lodged a motion for council to ask to make a submission to the Electoral Boundaries Commission.
The submission will state that council would prefer to stay in the Lowan electorate, with the second option being to move only Jeparit and Rainbow.
"Our least favourite option is to move the whole shire," Mr Miller said.
Council voted unanimously to ask permission to lodge a submission.
The Electoral Boundaries Commission will submit draft boundaries in June and final ones in October.
