Maryland elected six Democratic-Republicans, one Federalist, and two dissenting Federalists to the Nineteenth Congress. Two of those Democratic-Republicans were part of a faction led by Andrew Jackson, and two of those Democratic-Republicans were part of a faction led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay. Both dissenting Federalists supported Adams and Clay. As the Federalist Party declined, many Federalists distanced themselves from the main party. Instead, their political affiliation more closely aligned with their choice of candidate for the 1824 presidential election.
Maryland used a district system for electing members to Congress. Each district elected one member of Congress except District 5, which elected two members.

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.
