Scott is an electoral district of the Enderronian Parliament in Cooksland Prefecture. It was created in the 1990 redistribution and first contested at the federal election later that year. It is a near-landlocked semi-rural electorate in the south of the prefecture, stretching between the outskirts of Reedijk and Rockingham to the border with Westhaven Prefecture. The seat is named after Enderronian author Roger Scott.

The sitting member, since the 2014 federal election, is Pauline Morrison, a member of the Enderron Democrats.

History

First proclaimed in the 1990 redistribution, Scott was carved out of the neighbouring electorates of Endeavour and Marshall Bay, and is effectively a successor to the abolished electorate of West Ranges, which covered a similar area during the early 20th century.

Prior to 2014, Scott was a relatively safe seat for the Liberal Party, being a rural electorate in fairly conservative territory. However, since the 2000s the party's hold on the seat has become more tenuous, and the rise of the Enderron Democrats gradually whittled down its safeness. In 2014 the Democrats won Scott from the Liberals, gaining their first parliamentary seat won at a general election. The party retained Scott by a narrow margin of 0.44 percent in 2018.

There have been proposals for the district to be jointly named for Samuel David Scott, who was prime minister from 1900 to 1901. However, as of 2020 no such action has been taken.
