Connecticut elected seven Federalists to the Fifth Congress.
Mapping this election is not possible because of the lack of returns at the town or county level.
Connecticut used a statewide at-large method for electing members to Congress.
In October 1797, a special election was held in which William Edmond was elected to replace James Davenport, who died while in office.

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.
