Mapping Early American Elections


18th Congress: Vermont 1822

Vermont elected five Democratic-Republicans to the Eighteenth Congress.

Following the 1820 Census, Vermont lost one seat in the House of Representatives.

Vermont again switched to a statewide at-large system for electing members to Congress.

In 1824, a special election was held in which Henry Olin was elected to replace Charles Rich, who had died.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Rollin C. Mallory Democratic-Republican 17,660 19%
At-large Samuel C. Crafts Democratic-Republican 16,253 17.4%
At-large Charles Rich Democratic-Republican 13,732 14.7%
At-large Other candidates 12,779 13.6%
At-large Daniel Azro A. Buck Democratic-Republican 10,176 10.9%
At-large William C. Bradley Democratic-Republican 9,911 10.6%
At-large John Mattocks Democratic-Republican 6,864 7.4%
At-large Elias Keyes Democratic-Republican 5,773 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.
