Mapping Early American Elections


17th Congress: New Hampshire 1820

New Hampshire elected six Democratic-Republicans to the Seventeenth Congress.

New Hampshire used a statewide at-large system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large William Plummer, Jr. Democratic-Republican 10,692 16.4%
At-large Nathaniel Upham Democratic-Republican 10,455 16.1%
At-large Josiah Butler Democratic-Republican 10,236 15.7%
At-large Matthew Harvey Democratic-Republican 9,228 14.2%
At-large Aaron Matson Democratic-Republican 9,071 13.9%
At-large Thomas Whipple, Jr. Democratic-Republican 7,102 10.9%
At-large Other candidates 4,283 5.9%
At-large Arthur Livermore Democratic-Republican 4,053 6.2%

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.
