Kentucky elected ten Democratic-Republicans to the Fourteenth Congress.
The map for this election is incomplete due to the lack of returns at the town or county level.
Kentucky used a district system for electing members to Congress.
In 1815, a special election was held to confirm the legality of Henry Clay’s election to the the Fourteenth Congress, as he was serving as a foreign minster during the regular election. Clay’s election was confirmed without opposition.
In 1816, a special election was held in which Thomas Fletcher was elected to replace James Clarke, who had resigned.

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.
