One week ago, polls were about to close across the Commonwealth. Hopefully you've all had sufficient time to recover from election fatigue, because now I bring you a breakdown of How Montco Voted.

Montco voters sent all but three incumbents -- Gov. Tom Corbett, Rep. LeAnna Washington (who lost primary re-election and resigned from office amid a corruption case), and Rep. Mark Painter -- back to Harrisburg. Although the county leans Democratic in terms of voter registration, it sent 12 Republican legislators to Harrisburg and D.C., compared with 8 Democratic legislators.

Montgomery County districts were already among the state's most heavily gerrymandered, and became more so in this election with the implementation of the 2012 redistricting lines.
