Mapping Early American Elections


9th Congress: Vermont 1805

Vermont elected two Federalists and two Democratic-Republicans to the Ninth Congress.

Vermont used the district system for electing members to Congress.

1 Gideon Olin Democratic-Republican 1,985 56.6%
1 Jonas Galusha Democratic-Republican 848 24.2%
1 Chauncey Langdon Federalist 658 18.7%
2 James Elliot Federalist 1,994 62.1%

3 William Chamberlain Federalist 1,789 42.7%
4 Martin Chittenden Federalist 2,354 50.4%
4 Ezra Butler Democratic-Republican 2,180 46.7%

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.
