ⓘ 1813 United States House of Representatives elections in New Jersey

New Jersey kept its delegation at six seats but changed from electing its Representatives on a statewide general ticket to using three plural districts of two seats each. These districts were used only for the 1812 election, and the state returned to using a single at-large district in 1814. This was only the second time that New Jersey used districts.

Been on staff in the elections held in November of 1812, which was declared invalid:

In October 1812, when the Federalists seized the Legislature, both parties have already nominated their tickets for presidential electors, and Congress. The elections were scheduled for November 1812. However. the Federalists, now controlling the Legislature changed the method of selecting presidential electors from the peoples vote to choose the legislature and the election of the presidential electors were declared invalid. In addition to changing the method of electing presidential electors, the Federalists decided to redo the elections of congressmen from districts in state wide. Scheduled November elections were postponed and three separate areas, each of which elects two congressmen. These elections were held on 12 and 13 January 1813. In some cities, either because words, these changes did not reach them in time, or rather in opposition, went ahead and held elections. The Republican ticket received almost all votes cast, with the federalist receiving only one vote in the two cities, which suggests that they were protesting against changes to the legislature. These returns were never reported in the Newspapers.
