ⓘ 1808 Virginias 17th congressional district special election

Elections to the United States House of Representatives for the 11th Congress were held in the various states between April 1808 and May 1809. The Congress first met on May 22, 1809.

Although democratic-Republicans maintained control of the presidency under James Madison and Congress after the election in 1808, the Federalists made significant gains in the house, mostly due to the unpopularity of the embargo act of 1807. In particular, voters in New England, often associated with delivery or manufacturing industries, overwhelmingly chose to send Federalists to Washington. Economic stagnation due to the closure of the export market and fears that the Democratic-Republican policies may well lead America in the naval war with France or Britain were the key questions that a brief splash of the Federalists. Democratic-Republicans were left by a two-thirds majority for the first time since the election of 1800 and 1801.
