Pennsylvania elected seven Federalists and six Democratic-Republicans to the Fourth Congress.
In this election, Pennsylvania switched from a statewide at-large method for electing members to Congress to a district system. Each district elected one member of Congress except District 4, which, because of its dense population, elected two members.
In July 1796, Pennsylvania held a special election which elected George Ege to replace Daniel Hiester, who resigned his seat.
In 1797, Pennsylvania held a special election which elected Daniel Hiester to replace George Ege, who resigned his seat.

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.
