Special election to fill the seat of Zabdiel Sampson, having resigned July 26, 1820.
Massachusetts law required a majority to elect for the U.S. House of Representatives. The original election was held on November 24, 1820.
Though Aaron Hobart had achieved a majority at the first Special Election, a new election was ordered because no returns were received from the town of Hanson.
