Mapping Early American Elections

3rd Congress: Georgia 1792

Georgia elected one Democratic-Republican and one Federalist to the Third Congress.

Georgia used a state-wide at-large system for electing members to Congress. Its seats in Congress were decreased from three to two following the 1790 Census.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Abraham Baldwin Democratic-Republican 5,488 44.5%
At-large Thomas P. Carnes Federalist 3,632 29.5%
At-large George Matthews Federalist 1,334 10.8%
At-large John Milledge Democratic-Republican 1,002 8.1%
At-large Francis Willis Federalist 824 6.7%

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.
