In its first congressional election, Tennessee elected one Democratic-Republican to the Fourth Congress. Andrew Jackson was seated for the second session of that Congress.
Tennessee used a statewide at-large system for electing its members to Congress. Votes were reported within administrative districts that contained several counties.
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.
