Mapping Early American Elections

19th Congress: Indiana 1824

Indiana elected three Democratic-Republicans to the Nineteenth 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.

Indiana used a district system for electing members to Congress.

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
1 Ratliff Boon Jacksonian 4,281 42.1%
1 Jacob Call Jacksonian 3,230 31.8%
1 Thomas H. Blake Adams/Clay 2,661 26.2%
2 Jonathan Jennings Adams/Clay 4,680 53.2%
2 Jeremiah Sullivan 4,119 46.8%
3 John Test Adams/Clay 3,522 44.5%
3 James Brown Ray 2,936 37.1%
3 Daniel J. Caswell 1,459 18.4%

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.
