Titirangi is a former New Zealand parliamentary electorate. It existed from 1987 to 2002, with a break from 1996 to 1999. It was represented by four members of parliament, with three of them from Labour and one from National.
The 1987 electoral redistribution took the continued population growth in the North Island into account, and two additional general electorates were created, bringing the total number of electorates to 97. In the South Island, the shift of population to Christchurch had continued.Overall, three electorates were newly created (including Titirangi), three electorates were recreated, and four electorates were abolished. All of those electorates were in the North Island. Changes in the South Island were restricted to boundary changes. These changes came into effect with the 1987 election.
The electorate was in the western suburbs of Auckland, and initially included the population centres of Titirangi and Laingholm.Most of the electorate's area had come from the Waitakere electorate, but some areas came from Te Atatu and New Lynn. Later, the Titirangi electorate moved further east and took in the suburb of New Lynn.
Ralph Maxwell of the Labour Party was the electorate's first representative; he had since 1978 represented the Waitakere electorate.In the 1990 election, Maxwell was defeated by National's Marie Hasler, one of a number of losses contributing to the fall of the Fourth Labour Government. In the 1993 election, Labour's Suzanne Sinclair beat the incumbent. The electorate existed until 1996, when it was replaced by the reconstituted Waitakere. Hasler defeated Sinclair in Waitakere in the 1996 election.
For the 1999 election, the Titirangi electorate was recreated from parts of Waitakere and New Lynn. Hasler was defeated by Labour's David Cunliffe.In 2002, the Titirangi electorate was abolished.
