While the overall results for the three Canberra electorates and the ACT Senate race were altogether unsurprising, with an all-Labor lower house and one seat each way in the upper house, a closer look under the bonnet reveals some interesting shifts in parts of the ACT.
Liberal Senator Zed Seselja will be returning to Capital Hill and returning to government, despite ACT Unions spending $100,000 on the "Dump Zed" campaign, and independent Anthony Pesec and the Greens trying to lay claim to being the only ones able to knock off Seselja.
The Liberal Senate vote dropped by 3.46 percentage points, and while it pushed the party slightly further away from achieving a quota in its own right, some of that swing was absorbed by Labor instead of minor parties.
No other group came anywhere close enough to moving the spot away from the Liberals.
Despite failures across the country elsewhere, in the ACT Labor increased its Senate vote, making Katy Gallagher's return even more comfortably achieved.
Mr Pesec managed slightly more than 5 per cent of the Senate vote, meaning he will make back some of the tens of thousands of dollars spent on his campaign. He will receive public funding, having received more than 4 per cent.
While the Greens increased their vote to 19.67 per cent in the Senate, well above any other state in the country, it was nowhere near what is needed for a quota in a territory with only two Senate spots - about 33 per cent.
In the south, both major parties experienced swings against them. The highest number of independents and micro parties ran in the seat of Bean.
Local specialist doctor Jamie Christie dragged the most votes away from the major parties in Bean, gaining 8.4 per cent of first preferences.
Voters in Belconnen and Gungahlin still turned out in droves for Andrew Leigh, although Liberal Leanne Castley managed to increase the party's vote by 1 percentage point, as did Andrew Braddock for the Greens.
In the central seat of Canberra, including the inner south and inner north, Labor's vote dropped by only 1.61 percentage point, dashing the hopes of the Greens, who thought they could take advantage of the new boundaries and lack of incumbent member.
While swings of 7 to 11 per cent went to the Greens in some booths in the people's republic of the inner north, it was still a resounding victory for Alicia Payne.
The Liberals' Mina Zaki campaigned hard, but a filmed outburst at a polling place in the dying days of the campaign, as well as the Liberals' announced cuts to the public service cut her vote by 5.28 percentage points.
