Mapping Early American Elections


10th Congress: Tennessee 1807

Tennessee elected three Democratic-Republicans to the Tenth Congress.

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

Tennessee used the district system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
1 John Rhea Democratic-Republican 5,655 unopposed
2 George W. Campbell Democratic-Republican 5,143 69.3%
2 Pleasant M. Miller Democratic-Republican 2,281 30.7%
3 Jesse Wharton Democratic-Republican 5,165 62.5%
3 James Lyon Democratic-Republican 2,574 31.2%
3 Other candidates 522 6.3%

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.
