Mapping Early American Elections


19th Congress: Louisiana 1824

Louisiana elected three Democratic-Republicans to the Nineteenth Congress. Two of those Democratic-Republicans were part of a faction led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay, and the other was part of a faction led by Andrew Jackson.

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

Louisiana used a district system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
1 Edward Livingston Jacksonian 1,239 98.4%
2 Henry H. Gurley Adams/Clay
3 William L. Brent Adams/Clay

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.
