Mapping Early American Elections


10th Congress: Georgia 1806

Georgia elected four Federalists to the Tenth Congress.

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

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

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Dennis Smelt Federalist 9,758 18.3%
At-large George M. Troup Federalist 9,112 17.1%
At-large William W. Bibb Federalist 8,274 15.6%
At-large Howell Cobb Federalist 6,985 13.1%
At-large Elijah Clarke Federalist 6,491 12.2%
At-large William Barnett Federalist 3,721 7%
At-large Thomas Carr 3,187 6%
At-large James Simms 3,124 5.9%

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.
