"Two of the republican candidates for aldermen having an equal number of votes, their election will depend upon a future choice. As will also that of one of the assessors -- the collector and the road-master in the 5th ward." The Bee (Hudson, NY). April 14, 1812.
The Northern Whig (Hudson, NY) alleges several instances of malfeasance on the part of the Republicans in the charter elections (the city's mayor was Republican). These include the disenfranchisment of ten black men who had regularly voted in previous elections; the practice of allowing soldiers stationed in the city to vote; and the instance that some minors had been permitted to vote.
"In the first place, the federalists lost this election by the necessary absence of seven federalists, attending as party and as witness in a suit in the Circuit Court of the U States, then sitting in the city of New York. -- The votes of these persons would have carried in every candidate on the federal ticket." Northern Whig (Hudson, NY). April 13, 1812.
