Mapping Early American Elections


3rd Congress: New Hampshire 1792

New Hampshire elected four Federalists to the Third Congress.

Mapping this election is not possible because there are insufficient returns at the town and county levels.

New Hampshire used a state-wide at-large system for electing members to Congress. It gained a seat following the 1790 Census.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Jeremiah Smith Federalist 4,306 22.3%
At-large Nicholas Gilman Federalist 2,912 15.1%
At-large John Samuel Sherburne Federalist 2,536 13.1%
At-large Paine Wingate Federalist 2,168 11.2%
At-large Abiel Foster Federalist 1,580 8.2%
At-large Other candidates 1,514 7.9%
At-large Other candidates Federalist 1,490 7.7%
At-large James Sheafe Federalist 1,460 7.6%
At-large Nathaniel Peabody Federalist 1,370 7.1%

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.
