Mapping Early American Elections


11th Congress: Georgia 1808

Georgia elected four Democratic-Republicans to the Eleventh Congress.

Mapping for this election is incomplete because of a lack of returns in several counties.

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

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large William Bibb Democratic-Republican 12,805 22.7%
At-large George Troup Democratic-Republican 12,532 22.2%
At-large Howell Cobb Democratic-Republican 11,602 20.6%
At-large Dennis Smelt Democratic-Republican 8,361 14.8%
At-large James E. Houston Democratic-Republican 6,240 11.1%
At-large John M. Dooley Federalist 4,838 8.6%

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.
