Mapping Early American Elections

18th Congress: New Hampshire 1822

New Hampshire elected five Democratic-Republicans to the Eighteenth Congress. All five of those Democratic-Republicans were part of a faction led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay.

New Hampshire used a statewide at-large system for electing members to Congress. New Hampshire was apportioned one less seat in the House of Representatives.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Matthew Harvey Adams/Clay 12,222 16.1%
At-large Thomas Whipple, Jr. Adams/Clay 11,883 15.7%
At-large Other candidates 11,648 15.1%
At-large Aaron Matson Adams/Clay 11,209 14.8%
At-large Ichabod Bartlett Adams/Clay 10,963 14.5%
At-large William Plumer, Jr. Adams/Clay 8,632 11.4%
At-large Edmund Parker 5,036 6.6%
At-large Charles Woodman Democratic-Republican 4,155 5.5%

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.
