Mapping Early American Elections


11th Congress: Connecticut 1808

Connecticut elected seven Federalists to the Eleventh Congress.

Mapping this election is not possible because of the lack of returns at the town or county level.

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

In 1810, a special election was held in which Ebenezer Huntington was elected to replace Samuel Dana, who was appointed as an U.S. Senator.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Benjamin Tallmadge Federalist
At-large Epaphroditus Champion Federalist
At-large John Davenport Federalist
At-large Jonathan O. Moseley Federalist
At-large Lewis B. Sturges Federalist
At-large Samuel W. Dana Federalist
At-large Timothy Pitkin, Jr. Federalist

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.
