The constituency of Traunviertel (constituency 4) is a constituency in Upper Austria, which includes the political districts of Gmunden , Kirchdorf , Steyr-Land and Steyr . The constituency largely corresponds to the geographical Traunviertel , but without its northern part. In the 2015 state elections , 196,475 people were eligible to vote in the Traunviertel constituency, with the Austrian People's Party (ÖVP) emerging as the strongest party with 35.56%.
The Traunviertel constituency was created with Law No. 29 of March 18, 1925 as part of the amendment to the state election regulations of March 18, 1919. The constituency was formed by law from the city of Steyr and the judicial districts of Bad Ischl, Enns, Gmunden, Grünburg, Kirchdorf an der Krems, Kremsmünster, Markt St. Florian, Neuhofen an der Krems, Steyr, Weyer and Windischgarsten, with Steyr as the seat of the Electoral authority was established. While the state election regulations of 1919 still provided for eight constituencies, the number of constituencies was reduced to five with the change in the law in 1925. The constituency of Traunviertel emerged from the constituency of Steyr (constituency 7) and the constituency of Gmunden (constituency 8). In 1949, the area of the constituency was finally equated with constituency 15 of the National Council electoral code, which, however, included the same area.
With the O. ö. Landtag election regulation amendment in 1967, the area of the constituency was changed. The constituency now comprised the districts of Gmunden, Kirchdorf an der Krems, Steyr-Land and Steyr as well as the Linz-Land district excluding the communities of Hörsching, Kirchberg-Thening, Leonding, Oftering, Pasching, Traun and Wilhering.
With the amendment to the O.Ö. Landtag election regulation in 1971, the area of the constituency was finally reduced to its current size and since then has included the political districts of Gmunden, Kirchdorf an der Krems, Steyr-Land and Steyr.
