Georgia elected two Anti-Federalists and one Federalist to the Second Congress.
Georgia used a state-wide at-large system for electing members to Congress, but candidates had to be resident in the district to which they were elected.
The election between Anthony Wayne and James Jackson in the first district was contested, and the results from Effingham and Camden counties were ruled invalid. A special election was held in July, 1792, in which Republican John Millage defeated the Federalist Matthew McAllister.

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. The term Dissenting Republican includes various breakaway factions of the Democratic-Republican party.
