Connecticut elected five Federalists to the First Congress.
It is not possible to map this election because no town, county, or district level returns survive.
Connecticut used a state-wide at-large system to elect members of Congress. Connecticut had a two-tiered system of election. A nomination election was held first to establish the congressional candidates. Then a general election was held to decide who would be seated in congress.
In 1790, a special election was held to replace Pierpont Edwards who declined to serve. Jeremiah Wadsworth was elected.
In most cases, only candidates who received more than 5 percent of the vote in a district are reported. Other candidates are reported as a group, but only if they in aggregate received more than 5 percent of the vote. In addition, percentages for each district may not add up to 100 percent due to rounding.
