Mapping Early American Elections

12th Congress: Connecticut 1810

Connecticut elected seven Federalists to the Twelfth Congress.

Mapping this election is not possible because of the lack of returns at the town or county level.

Connecticut used a statewide at-large method for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Lewis B. Sturges Federalist 4,744 14.8%
At-large Jonathan O. Mosely Federalist 4,447 13.8%
At-large Benjamin Tallmadge Federalist 4,396 13.7%
At-large Epaphroditus Champion Federalist 4,337 13.5%
At-large Other candidates 4,069 12.6%

At-large Lyman Law Federalist 3,530 11%
At-large John Davenport, Jr. Federalist 2,689 8.4%

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.
