Mapping Early American Elections

19th Congress: Connecticut 1825

Connecticut elected six Democratic-Republicans to the Nineteenth Congress. Five of those Democratic-Republicans was part of a faction led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay.

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

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large Other candidates 9,613 22.6%
At-large Gideon Tomlinson Democratic-Republican 6,266 15.3%
At-large Elisha Phelps Adams/Clay 5,934 14.5%
At-large Ralph I. Ingersoll Adams/Clay 5,545 13.5%
At-large Orange Merwin Adams/Clay 5,518 13.5%
At-large Noyes Barber Adams/Clay 4,401 10.8%
At-large John Baldwin Adams/Clay 3,653 8.9%

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.
