Mapping Early American Elections

13th Congress: Connecticut 1812

Connecticut elected seven Federalists to the Thirteenth 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 system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Benjamin Talmadge Federalist 10,631 14.6%
At-large Timothy Pitkin, Jr. Federalist 10,341 14.2%
At-large John Davenport, Jr. Federalist 10,162 13.9%
At-large Lewis B. Sturges Federalist 10,076 13.8%
At-large Jonathan O. Mosely Federalist 9,872 13.5%
At-large Epaphroditus Champion Federalist 9,572 13.1%
At-large Lyman Law Federalist 9,476 13%

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.
