1794–1795 United States House of Representatives elections in Massachusetts

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Only eight of the 14 Massachusetts incumbents were re-elected.

Massachusetts redistricted between the 3rd and 4th Congress, dividing itself into 14 districts. The 12th-14th districts were in the District of Maine (the modern state of Maine). A majority was required for election. Additional ballots were required in five districts due to the majority requirement not being met on the first ballot.

A petition by various citizens of Massachusetts contested the election. The Committee on Elections ruled in the winner's favor and added "that the attempt to deprive him of his seat was rather the act of malevolence than a desire to promote the public good." On January 25, 1797, these words were stricken out and expressions of compliment to the member were substituted, and the report was agreed to.[1]
