Elections to the United States House of Representatives for the 14th Congress were held at various dates in different states between April 1814 and August 1815 during President James Madison's second term.

This election happened in the middle of the War of 1812. The war was extremely unpopular in certain regions, particularly New England. The failed American invasion of Upper Canada (Ontario) and the 1814 Burning of Washington were embarrassing military setbacks, but the Democratic-Republican Party remained dominant and the declining Federalist Party was unable to convert war opposition into political gain.

Notes

  1. ^ Excludes states admitted during the 14th Congress
  2. ^ a b c Includes late elections
  3. ^ Massachusetts law required a majority vote for election, which was not met in two districts, requiring a second election, held on January 6, 1815.
  4. ^ a b c d e f g h i Only candidates with at least 1% of the vote listed.
  5. ^ Samuel Smith's resignation is not mentioned in the Biographical Directory of the United States Congress.[6]

  7. ^ a b Henry Clay was elected to the 2nd district, which he had represented in the 12th and 13th Congresses until he resigned to accept a position as diplomatic envoy to Great Britain. He was still out of the country at the time of the general election. Kentucky's governor, unsure of the implications of a situation in which Clay held the office of United States Representative and diplomatic envoy simultaneously, declared his seat vacant. A subsequent special election was held in 1815, which Clay won without opposition, See above. Although the district was unrepresented from the March 4, 1815 (the start of the 14th Congress) until October 30, 1815, the 14th Congress did not meet until December 4, 1815[14] so there was no effective vacancy.
  8. ^ a b Won special election to fill vacancy in 13th Congress.
  9. ^ a b The source indicates uncertainty as to whether Farrow ran in 1814.
  10. ^ a b Source did not provide full name.
