Rhode Island elected two Democratic-Republicans to the Tenth Congress.
Rhode Island used a statewide at-large method for electing a member to Congress.
In 1808, a special election was held in which Federalist Richard Jackson, Jr. was elected to replace Nehemiah Knight, who died while in 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.
