Craftian House of Representatives Division
The Division of Casto is a Craftian federal division in the state of Western Craftia. It was created in 2019 and first contested at the federal election later that year. Located towards the eastern edge of the central business district of Richmond, Casto is a coastal electorate with a highly multicultural population, directly facing Victoria Harbour. It is named after Raj Casto (1967–2015), the first Indian Craftian Member of Parliament, serving from 2004 to 2015 as the MP for East Richmond; the division was renamed in his honour following his death.
The sitting member, since the 2044 by-election, is James Hines, a member of the National United Party.
Casto is one of the United Party's safest seats in Western Craftia; the party currently sits on a margin of 10.27%. It remains the only electorate in Western Craftia to have voted for United at every election in its existence. It is, however, noticeably polarised, with the northern end of the seat being heavily Conservative-leaning, while the remainder of the seat falling towards the United side of the vote. Casto has slowly shifted northwards through successive redistributions, but this has done little to change its voting patterns.
