Mapping Early American Elections

17th Congress: Connecticut 1821

Connecticut elected seven Democratic-Republicans to the Seventeenth Congress.

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

At-large Gideon Tomlinson Democratic-Republican 6,577 13.7%
At-large Noyes Barber Democratic-Republican 6,344 13.2%
At-large Henry W. Edwards Democratic-Republican 6,283 13.1%

At-large Ansel Sterling Democratic-Republican 6,010 12.5%
At-large Other candidates 5,783 12%
At-large Daniel Burrows Democratic-Republican 4,432 9.3%

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.
