Mapping Early American Elections

6th Congress: Kentucky 1799

Kentucky elected two Democratic-Republicans to the Sixth Congress.

The county level returns for this election are very incomplete.

Kentucky used a district system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
1 Thomas T. Davis Democratic-Republican unopposed
2 John Fowler Democratic-Republican 5,519 55.3%
2 Robert Johnston 2,543 25.5%
2 Philemon Thomas Democratic-Republican 1,914 19.2%

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.
