Mapping Early American Elections

8th Congress: Ohio 1803

Ohio elected one Democratic-Republican to the Eighth Congress.

Ohio used a statewide at-large method for electing a member to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Jeremiah Morrow Democratic-Republican 3,701 48.2%
At-large William MacMillan Federalist 2,043 26.6%
At-large Michael Baldwin Democratic-Republican 902 11.7%
At-large Elias Langham Democratic-Republican 615 8%
At-large Other candidates 420 5.6%

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.
