Mapping Early American Elections

7th Congress: New Hampshire 1800

New Hampshire elected four Federalists to the Seventh Congress.

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

In 1802, a special election was held in which Samuel Hunt was elected to replace Joseph Pierce, who had resigned from office.

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.
