The hard work starts now for newly elected Bass MHR Bridget Archer, who said she would prioritise delivering on her election commitments, including addressing issues in the health system.
Ms Archer's election win was made official on Thursday, with the declaration of the poll for the seat of Bass.
Australian Electoral Commission divisional manager Charlie Shaw said she anticipated there was still 807 votes to be received for counting, however the votes would not impact on the result.
Ms Archer held onto a slim lead of 560 votes, or 50.41 per cent, over outgoing Labor MHR Ross Hart, at 34,646 and 34,086 votes respectively.
Ms Archer said she would continue to work hard to represent the people of Bass.
"I think the hard work begins now," she said.
"It has been a wait obviously over the last few weeks, but I am very happy with the result and we have worked really hard for this the last few months.
"I feel incredibly humbled to be standing here today."

Responding to the recent Auditor-General report on Tasmania's health system, Ms Archer said she would continue to work closely with the state government to improve outcomes for the region.
"I think health is one of those issues that requires that multi-level approach," she said.
"It is so important to have governments, both state and federal, working together, to identify where the needs and the challenges might be and working on ways to address those.
"I have a good relationship with the Minister for Health, here in Tasmania, and I am sure that dialogue will continue over the next few years."
Ms Archer said she would work to ensure commitments announced during the election campaign became a reality as soon as possible.
"I think a lot of it will be able to be actioned fairly quickly, particularly some of those regional grant opportunities that were announced prior to the election," she said.
"I know that councils are shuffle ready with those projects, they are ready to go.
"They will be waiting on grant deeds that couldn't be finalised during the election campaign.
"So I anticipate some of that will start to happen quite quickly."
