Mapping Early American Elections

15th Congress: New Jersey 1816

New Jersey elected six Democratic-Republicans to the Fifteenth Congress.

The map for this election is incomplete due to the lack of returns at the town or county level.

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

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large John Linn Democratic-Republican 5,691 16.8%
At-large Charles Kinsey Democratic-Republican 5,589 16.5%
At-large Henry Southard Democratic-Republican 5,544 16.3%
At-large Joseph Bloomfield Democratic-Republican 5,498 16.2%
At-large Benjamin Bennett Democratic-Republican 5,472 16.1%
At-large Ephraim Bateman Democratic-Republican 5,434 16%

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.
