After eight weeks of campaigning and more of counting, the 2016 federal election is finally over.

The Australian Electoral Commission returned the writs for the House of Representatives and Senate elections on Monday.

The returning of the writs for all state and territories marks the end of the election process and comes ahead of the return of parliament on August 30.
