[2]Massachusetts law required a majority to elect for the U.S. House of Representatives. The original election was held on November 1, 1824. A 2nd Trial was held on January 3, 1825 in which Samuel Lathrop received a majority. However, as no election was held in the towns of Holland and South Brimfield, a 3rd Trial was ordered.
[3]The votes from Blandford were not included in the Original Election Returns.
