[3]4464 total votes; 2233 necessary for a choice.
[4]"On Monday last the Electors of this State assembled fot the choice of Electors of President and Representatives to Congress. So little interest did the people in this part of our District take in the election, that though we have seen people from several towns, we were not fortunate enough to meet one who knew the state of the polls, or in fact even voted!" Eastport Sentinel and Passamquoddy Advertiser (Eastport, ME). November 11, 1820.
[5]"The votes given in this town for Mr. Hill were not thrown with an expectation of preventing the choice of Gen. Wingate as an elector, but as an expression of disapprobation of the conduct of Gen. Wingate, and some of his friends, for writing to, and advising Mr. Hill to vote for the compromise of Missouri Question, and then urging his vote given according to that advice to prevent his re-election. This kind of electioneering does not exactly accord with our ideas 'of the fair principles of trade;' and we further understand that votes were given for Mr. Hill in several other town (sic) in this county with the same views and feelings without distinction of party." Weekly Visiter (Kennebunk, ME). November 11, 1820.
