Mapping Early American Elections

14th Congress: Georgia 1814

Georgia elected six Democratic-Republicans to the Fourteenth Congress.

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

In 1816, a special election was held in which Zadock Cook was elected to replace Alfred Cuthbert, who had resigned from office.

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.
