Delaware elected a Federalist to the First Congress.
Delaware used a state-wide at-large system to elect members of Congress. Voters cast two votes in the election. The first had to be for a candidate from their home county and the second for a candidate from a different county.
|At-large||Gunning Bedford, Jr.||308||15%|
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.
