Mapping Early American Elections


7th Congress: Kentucky 1801

Kentucky elected two Democratic-Republicans to the Seventh Congress.

Mapping this election is incomplete because of the lack of local returns in many areas.

Kentucky used a district system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
1 Thomas T. Davis Democratic-Republican 8,901 78.8%
1 John Pope Federalist 2,401 21.2%
2 John Fowler Democratic-Republican 7,175 67.9%
2 William Garrard 2,048 19.4%
2 Philemon Thomas Democratic-Republican 1,351 12.8%

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.
