ⓘ 1812 United States House of Representatives election in Missouri Territory

Elections to the United States House of Representatives for the 13th Congress were held at different dates in the various states between August 3, 1812 and April 30, 1813 as James Madison was re-elected to a second term as President. The Congress convened on May 24, 1813.

A significant expansion in the size of the house occurred as a result of population growth revealed in the census 1810. The largest number of new seats were created for the rapid settlement of Western territories. After Americas entry into the war of 1812 against Britain, the Democratic-Republican and federalist parties effectively served as Pro-war and antiwar camps. Democratic-Republican representatives from southern and Western States were the main leaders in the push to declare war, claiming that the British had violated Americas sovereign rights. A high level of support for the conflict in agrarian regions resulted the democratic-Republicans taking many newly created rural areas. In contrast to the Federalists and their supporters in New England opposed the war from the start, citing its potential for damaging American trade and infrastructure. This position has received broad support in the country. The election of 1812 was indeed observed mass increase of the Federalists, many come to the Mid-Atlantic States, where support for the war became lukewarm after the first shots. However, the Federalists were not able to get anywhere near enough seats to secure a majority in the House of representatives.
