Mapping Early American Elections


12th Congress: Vermont 1810

Vermont elected one Federalists and three Democratic-Republican to the Twelfth Congress.

Vermont used the district system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
1 Samuel Shaw Democratic-Republican 3,139 65.4%
1 Chauncey Langdon Federalist 1,634 34%
2 William Strong Democratic-Republican 3,474 53.5%
2 Jonathan H. Hubbard Federalist 2,670 41.1%
3 James Fisk Democratic-Republican 3,177 56.7%
3 William Chamberlain Federalist 2,316 41.3%
4 Martin Chittenden Federalist 3,014 50%
4 Ezra Butler Democratic-Republican 2,863 47.5%

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.
