The Charleston Courier lists 224 votes for Thomas O. Elliot.
John Gadsden is elected to replace Simon Magwood, who had also been elected to the senate to replace John Geddes, but was ruled by the senate to hold a disqualifying office as a director of the Charleston branch of the Bank of the United States, and therefore never served.
Samuel Prioleau is elected to replace Keating Lewis Simons, who had died on September 1, 1819.
