Political geography

As the name implies, the district comprises the southwestern portion of New Brunswick. It includes all of Charlotte County and portions of York, Sunbury, Queens, Kings and Saint John Counties.

Major towns include St. Stephen, St. Andrews, St. George, Grand Bay–Westfield, McAdam, Harvey Station, Fredericton Junction, Gagetown, and the Kingsclear and Hanwell regions near Fredericton.

The neighbouring ridings are Tobique—Mactaquac, Fredericton, Fundy Royal, and Saint John.

"Charlotte" riding was created in 1867. In 1966, it was merged into Carleton—Charlotte.

"Charlotte" riding was re-created in 1996 primarily from Carleton—Charlotte, and incorporating parts of Fundy—Royal, Saint John, and Fredericton—York—Sunbury ridings. Shortly after the 1997 election, the riding became known as "New Brunswick Southwest".

The 2003 redistribution abolished New Brunswick Southwest. The territory of the riding was combined with the area around Belleisle Bay in south-central New Brunswick), and named "St. Croix—Belleisle". This riding was renamed "New Brunswick Southwest" in 2004.

The 2012 federal electoral redistribution will see this riding gain territory from Fredericton, and lose small portions to Fredericton and Fundy Royal.
