Virginia elected one Federalist and twenty-one Democratic-Republicans to the Eighteenth Congress. Two of those Democratic-Republicans were part of a faction led by Andrew Jackson, one of the Democratic-Republicans was part of a faction led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay, and fourteen of the Democratic-Republicans were part of a faction led by William Crawford.
The map for this election is incomplete due to the lack of returns in several counties.
Following the 1820 Census, Virginia lost one seat in the House of Representatives.
Virginia used a district system for electing members to Congress.
In 1824, a special election was held in which John Taliaferro was elected to replace William Lee Ball, who had died.

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.
