Mapping Early American Elections


13th Congress: North Carolina 1813

North Carolina elected four Federalists and nine Democratic-Republicans to the Thirteenth Congress.

The map for this election is incomplete due to the lack of returns at the county level.

Following the 1810 Census, North Carolina gained one more seat in the House of Representatives.

North Carolina used a district system for electing members to Congress.

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.
