Mapping Early American Elections

13th Congress: Georgia 1812

Georgia elected six Democratic-Republicans to the Thirteenth Congress.

The map for this election is incomplete due to the lack of returns for Twiggs County.

Following the 1810 Census, Georgia gained two more seats in the House of Representatives.

Georgia used a statewide at-large system for electing members to Congress.

In 1813, a special election was held in which Alfred Cuthbert was elected to replace William W. Bibb, who had resigned from office.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large William Bibb Democratic-Republican 11,881 18.1%
At-large George M. Troup Democratic-Republican 11,026 16.8%
At-large William Barnett Democratic-Republican 10,466 15.9%
At-large Thomas Telfair Democratic-Republican 10,461 15.9%
At-large Bolling Hall Democratic-Republican 9,925 15.1%
At-large John Forsyth Democratic-Republican 9,185 14%

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.
