New Hampshire elected three Federalists and two Democratic-Republicans to the Twelfth Congress.
New Hampshire used a statewide at-large method for electing members to Congress. New Hampshire law required a majority to elect for the U.S. House of Representatives. Each voter was allotted five votes for the five seats. The percentages reflect the percent of the total votes cast. The first ballot resulted in only two representatives elected. Therefore, a second ballot was held to elect John A. Harper, Obed Hall, and George Sullivan.
|At-large||David L. Morrill||Democratic-Republican||11,616||10%|
|At-large||John A. Harper||Democratic-Republican||11,535||9.9%|
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.
