Mapping Early American Elections


9th Congress: New Jersey 1804

New Jersey elected six Democratic-Republicans to the Ninth Congress.

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

New Jersey used a statewide at-large method for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Henry Southard Democratic-Republican 13,228 16.6%
At-large Ebenezer Elmer Democratic-Republican 13,212 16.6%
At-large John Lambert Democratic-Republican 13,185 16.6%
At-large William Helmes Democratic-Republican 13,157 16.5%
At-large James Sloan Democratic-Republican 13,068 16.4%
At-large Ezra Darby Democratic-Republican 13,060 16.4%

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.
