Rhode Island elected two Democratic-Republicans to the Seventh Congress.
Rhode Island used a statewide at-large method for electing a member to Congress. State law required a majority to elect. Joseph Stanton Jr. did not meet this requirement and a 2nd ballot was held resulting in his election.
|At-large||Joseph Stanton, Jr.||Democratic-Republican||1,494||24%||✓|
|At-large||Richard Jackson, Jr.||Federalist||1,243||19.9%|
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.
