Mapping Early American Elections


2nd Congress: South Carolina 1790

South Carolina elected three Federalists and two Anti-Federalists to the Second Congress.

Most of South Carolina’s parishes cannot be mapped because there are insufficient returns at the parish level.

South Carolina used a district system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
1 William Smith Federalist unopposed
2 Robert Barnwell Federalist unopposed
3 Daniel Huger Federalist unopposed
4 Thomas Sumter Anti-Federalist unopposed
5 Thomas Tudor Tucker Anti-Federalist unopposed

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.
