[1]Nehemiah Brown, Jr. received 2 votes as Nehemiah Brown.
[2]For Hachaliah Baley, the one vote for him in Eastchester, as reported in the Westchester Herald (Mount Pleasant, NY) November 25, 1823, appears to be blurred and poorly type set, and perhaps was not meant to be there. Also, the three Republicans each polled 29, and the three scattering votes were probably meant to be a Ticket, so the one vote for Hachaliah Baley would have had to be a single vote, which was not usually done.
[3]Nehemiah Brown, Jr. received 8 votes as Nehemiah Brown.
[4]The Westchester Herald (Mount Pleasant, NY) for 1823, the November 11th issue, has some partial returns and for the town of Poundridge they give the following statement: "Poundridge gave about 70 votes for the regular ticket - opposition." The mistake for Niles Frost appears to be in this town; there were 3 Assemblymen to be elected and in Poundridge, the other two Republicans [Nehemiah Brown, Jr. and Benjamin Ferris] both poll 67 votes, which is close to the previous unofficial statement of "about 70." Tthe five reported votes for Niles Frost was likely meant to be 56, which then gives him the total of 1015.
[5]Nehemiah Brown, Jr. received 4 votes as Nehemiah Brown.
[6]No Returns
