Virginia elected twenty-two Democratic-Republicans to the Nineteenth Congress. Fourteen of those Democratic-Republicans were part of a faction led by Andrew Jackson, and seven of the Democratic-Republicans was part of a faction led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay.
The map for this election is incomplete due to the lack of returns in several counties.
Virginia used a district system for electing members to Congress.
In 1826, a special election was held in which George W. Crump was elected to replace John Randolph, who had resigned after being appointed to the United States Senate.

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.
