Louisiana elected three Democratic-Republicans to the Eighteenth Congress. Two of those Democratic-Republicans were part of a faction led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay, and the other Democratic-Republican was part of a faction led by Andrew Jackson.
Following the 1820 Census, Louisiana gained two seats in the House of Representatives.
For the first time, Louisiana used a district system for electing members to Congress.

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.
