Delaware elected a Federalist to the First Congress.
Delaware used a state-wide at-large system to elect members of Congress. Voters cast two votes in the election. The first had to be for a candidate from their home county and the second for a candidate from a different county.
|At-large||Gunning Bedford, Jr.||308||15%|
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.
