Mapping Early American Elections

19th Congress: New Jersey 1824

New Jersey elected six Democratic-Republicans to the Nineteenth Congress. Three of those Democratic-Republicans were part of a faction led by Andrew Jackson, and two were part of a faction led by John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay.

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

District Candidate Party Vote Percentage Elected
At-large George Holcombe Jacksonian 17,706 16.8%
At-large Samuel Swan Adams/Clay 17,672 16.7%
At-large Lewis Condict Adams/Clay 17,667 16.7%
At-large Daniel Garrison Jacksonian 17,585 16.6%
At-large George Cassedy Jacksonian 17,550 16.6%
At-large Ebenezer Tucker Democratic-Republican 17,027 16.1%

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.
