Political history

Progressive Conservative Todd Smith defeated Liberal incumbent Leona Dombrowsky by 3,130 votes in 2011.

Dombrowsky was elected to the riding in 2007 by a 6,123-vote margin over Tory Eric DenOuden. Liberal Ernie Parsons, who was first elected to the riding in 1999, kept his seat in 2003. But he left to become a justice of the peace in June 2007, leaving his seat open for the election later that year.

In the former riding of Prince Edward-Lennox, Tory N.E. Whitney served from 1951 to 1971. Fellow Tory James Taylor extended the Conservative streak, winning in 1971, 1975, 1977, 1981 and 1985. In 1987, Liberal Keith MacDonald won the riding.

New Democrat Paul Johnson won the renamed riding of Prince Edward-Lennox-South Hastings in 1990, but lost in 1995 to Tory Gary Fox.

In Quinte, Conservative Dick Potter won in 1967 and 1971. Liberal Hugh O'Neil held the seat from his first victory in 1975 until the Tories took it back in 1995.
