1822–1823 United States House of Representatives elections in Massachusetts

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Massachusetts elected its members November 4, 1822. Massachusetts law required a majority for election, which was not met in 3 districts, necessitating additional elections on March 3, 1823 and May 12, 1823; nevertheless, all elections were complete before the new Congress convened.
