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. The term Dissenting Republican includes various breakaway factions of the Democratic-Republican party.
