New York elected two Federalists, fourteen Democratic-Republicans, and one other Republican who was part of a faction within the party to the Tenth Congress. The Republican faction in this election was the Tertium Quids (or just Quids), a coalition of Federalists and moderate Democratic-Republicans.
New York used a district system for electing members to Congress. Each district elected one member of Congress, except Districts 2 and 3 (New York City and Brooklyn), which voted together as a single district and elected two members of Congress.
In 1808, a special election was held in which Democratic-Republican Nathan Wilson was elected to replace David Thomas, 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.
