[2]New Hampshire law required a majority to elect for Congress. As the top two vote-getters who did not receive a majority in the first election, Paine Wingate and Abiel Foster were declared as the candidates in the second election. The initial election was held in September of 1792.
[3]"Voters were requested to bring in their ballots for Presidential Electors. Also for or against the amendments to the Constitution. Only a few people were present and no votes were offered." Town Records, as quoted in History of Andover. 246.
[4]"At the November meeting, one representative and Six electors were voted for; only eleven votes cast for any one candidate, three candidates receiving but ten each." The History of Hancock, New Hampshire. 114.
[5]"Another special meeting was held November 12, and votes were brought in for 'vacant' presidential electors, and 'vacant' representatives to Congress. Only 23 of the legal voters of the town brought in their ballots, showing a great lack of enthusiasm, or a strong feeling of security touching the welfare of the country in view of a possible change of administration."
