Mapping Early American Elections

2nd Congress: New Hampshire 1790

New Hampshire elected three Federalists to the Second Congress.

Mapping this election is not possible because there are insufficient returns at the town and county levels.

New Hampshire used a state-wide at-large system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Samuel Livermore Federalist 3,585 26.8%
At-large Jeremiah Smith Federalist 1,876 14%
At-large Nicholas Gilman Federalist 1,681 12.6%
At-large John Samuel Sherburne Federalist 1,591 11.9%
At-large Other candidates Federalist 1,329 9.9%
At-large Abiel Foster Federalist 1,213 9.1%
At-large James Sheafe Federalist 1,111 8.3%
At-large Nathaniel Peabody Federalist 1,002 7.5%

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.
