Mapping Early American Elections

5th Congress: Georgia 1796

Georgia elected two Democratic-Republicans to the Fifth Congress.

Georgia used a statewide at-large method for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Abraham Baldwin Democratic-Republican 5,932 35.8%
At-large John Milledge Democratic-Republican 5,489 33.1%
At-large Thomas P. Carnes Federalist 3,104 18.7%
At-large Francis Willis Federalist 1,745 10.5%

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.
