Mapping Early American Elections

3rd Congress: Connecticut 1792

Connecticut elected seven Federalists to the Third Congress.

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

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

Several of Connecticut’s Congressmen were replaced in two different special elections in May and December 1793.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Jonathan Trumbull Federalist 3,333 14.2%
At-large James Hillhouse Federalist 3,054 13%
At-large Other candidates 2,693 11.6%
At-large Jonathan Sturgis Federalist 2,685 11.5%
At-large Benjamin Huntington Federalist 2,476 10.6%
At-large Jeremiah Wadsworth Federalist 2,426 10.3%
At-large Amasa Learned Federalist 2,217 9.5%
At-large Stephen Mix Mitchell Federalist 1,827 7.8%
At-large Uriah Tracey Federalist 1,476 6.3%
At-large Jonathan Ingersoll Federalist 1,258 5.4%

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.
