Mapping Early American Elections

11th Congress: Ohio 1808

Ohio elected a Republican who was part of a faction within the party to the Eleventh Congress. The Republican faction in this election was the Tertium Quids (or just Quids), a coalition of Federalists and moderate Democratic-Republicans.

The map for this election is incomplete due to the lack of returns at the town or county level.

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

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Jeremiah Morrow Republican Faction 11,852 71.5%
At-large Philemon Beecher Federalist 4,724 28.5%

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.
