Virginia elected fifteen Democratic-Republicans and four Federalists to the Third Congress.
Returns for Virginia’s elections to the Third Congress are often incomplete, in large part because so many elections were unopposed.
Virginia used a district system for electing members to Congress. Following the 1790 Census, Virginia gained nine seats in the House of Representatives.

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.
