In 1920 it was combined with Cobar and Willyama to create a three-member electorate, elected by proportional representation. At the time it was one of the largest electoral districts in the world, said to be 121,000 square miles, with votes having to be brought sometimes 500 miles by the primitive transportation of the time to the central counting place. But pro-rep pundits as far as away as Canada revelled in STV's successful implementation under such conditions.
In 1927, it became a single member electorate, but was renamed Broken Hill in 1968. It was recreated in 1971, but abolished in 1981.
