Mapping Early American Elections


5th Congress: Kentucky 1796

Kentucky elected two Democratic-Republicans to the Fifth Congress.

Kentucky used a district system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
1 Thomas Terry Davis Democratic-Republican unopposed
2 John Fowler Democratic-Republican

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.
