Mapping Early American Elections

16th Congress: Mississippi 1819

Mississippi elected one Democratic-Republican to the Sixteenth Congress.

The map for this election is incomplete due to the lack of returns in two counties.

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

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Christopher Rankin Democratic-Republican 2,769 68.9%
At-large Cowles Mead 1,250 31.1%

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.
