ⓘ 1814 Virginias 11th congressional district special election

Elections to the United States House of Representatives for the 14th Congress were held at various dates in each state between April 1814 and August 10, 1815 during James Madisons second term. The Congresss first session began on December 4, 1815.

These elections took place in the middle of the war of 1812. Although the war was extremely unpopular in some parts of the country, especially in New England, the dominant democratic-Republican party made little progress. The failed American invasion of Upper Canada Ontario in 1812-13, and the burning of Washington by the British in 1814, was an unfortunate failure, but the war was viewed by many as very successful. National morale was high because the small American military as a whole was able to fight with the British forces to a draw in the coastal and border conflicts.

In the election of 1814 was the last in which the declining federalist party was able to provide more than a third of the seats in the House of representatives – and it was barely able to do it.
