[2]Beginning in 1822, the Original Election Returns for Governor and Lieutenant Governor for Massachusetts stopped listing individual results for the scattering votes, instead listing them simply as scattering. Any identification of scattering votes is because of results published in various newspapers.
[3]The votes from Egremont were rejected.
[4]The votes from Florida were rejected.
[5]The votes from Erving's Grant were rejected.
[6]The votes from Chester were rejected.
[7]Columbian Centinel May 29, 1824:"The votes of Chester were rejected, there having been two returns, certified by two sets of Selectmen."
[8]The votes from Holland were rejected.
[9]"Not returned in Season." Original Election Returns.
[10]The Original Election Returns list 81 scattering votes for a total of 9241 votes in Middlesex County. This appears to be a transposing of the 18 scattering votes, as there are only 18 votes listed among the towns and the total votes of the towns add up to 9178.
[11]The votes from Townsend were rejected.
[12]"Not rc'd in Season." Original Election Returns.
[13]The votes from Tyngsborough were rejected.
[14]"Not rc'd in Season." Original Election Returns.
[15]The votes from Uxbridge were rejected.
