1802–1803 United States House of Representatives elections in Massachusetts

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Massachusetts increased 3 seats to 17 in reapportionment after the 1800 census. Massachusetts law at the time required a majority for election to an office, which requirement was not met in the 6th district, requiring two additional ballots.
