Mapping Early American Elections

19th Congress: Mississippi 1824

Mississippi elected one Democratic-Republican to the Nineteenth Congress. The Democratic-Republican was part of a faction led by Andrew Jackson.

The map for this election is incomplete due to the lack of returns in two counties.

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

In 1826, a special election was held in which William Haile was elected to replace Christopher Rankin, who had died.

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.
