1824 Massachusetts Senate election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

1824 Massachusetts Senate elections

← 1823 April–May 1824 1825 →

All 40 seats in the Massachusetts Senate
21 seats needed for a majority
  Majority party Minority party
 
Party Democratic-Republican Federalist
Seats won 25 12

Elections to the Massachusetts Senate were held during 1824 to elect State Senators. Candidates were elected at the county level, with some counties electing multiple Senators.

For election, a candidate needed the support of a majority of those voting. If a seat remained vacant because no candidate received such majority, the Massachusetts General Court was empowered to fill it by a majority vote of its members. If more candidates received majorities than there were seats, the top finishers were elected.

Results were certified or rejected by the Governor's Council.

Apportionment

The apportionment of seats by population was as follows:

  • Barnstable County: 1
  • Berkshire County: 2
  • Bristol and Dukes Counties: 3
  • Franklin County: 2
  • Essex County: 6
  • Hampden County: 2
  • Hampshire County: 2
  • Middlesex County: 5
  • Nantucket County: 1
  • Plymouth County: 2
  • Suffolk County: 6
  • Worcester County: 5
