Maryland elected three Federalists and six Democratic-Republicans to the Eighth Congress.
Following the 1800 Census, Maryland gained one seat in the House of Representatives.
Maryland used a district system for electing members to Congress. Each district elected one member of Congress except District 5, which elected two members.
In 1804, a special election was held in which Roger Nelson was elected to replace Daniel Hiester, who had died.
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.
