Virginia elected six Federalist, fifteen Democratic-Republicans, and one Republican who was part of a faction within the party to the Eleventh Congress. The dissenting Republican in this election was a Tertium Quid (or just Quid), a coalition of Federalists and moderate Democratic-Republicans.
The map for this election is incomplete due to the lack of returns in several counties.

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.
