[2]According to the census figures for 1810, New York was entitled to gain seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. However, the State Legislature did not re-apportion the Congressional districts before the elections scheduled for the spring. Therefore, elections for U.S. House of Representatives were held using the previous district boundaries. The results of these elections were declared null and void. A newly elected State Legislature redrew the districts and set the dates of December 15-17 for new Congressional elections.
[3]Not all counties held elections for U.S. House of Representatives during the spring cycle, since it was known that districts were slated to be redrawn.
[4]Chauncey Hyde was a candidate for Assembly in Broome County.
[5]Utica Patriot (Utica, NY) refers to William M. Price as Wm. N. Pierce.
[6]Utica Patriot (Utica, NY), Commercial Advertiser (New York, NY), and New-York Spectator (New York, NY) refer to Amos Patterson as N. Patterson and identify him as the Democratic candidate.
[7]William M. Price received 1 vote as William Price.
[8]Onondaga's Centennial, 270: "The Republican candidate for Congress received in this county 1,321 votes and the Federal 1,008."
