Mapping Early American Elections

4th Congress: Vermont 1794

Vermont elected two Federalists to the Fourth Congress.

Vermont used a district system for electing its members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
1 Israel Smith Federalist 1,804 49.2%
1 Matthew Lyon Democratic-Republican 1,783 48.6%
2 Daniel Buck Federalist 1,198 55.4%
2 Nathaniel Niles Democratic-Republican 842 38.9%
2 Other candidates 123 5.6%

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.
