ⓘ 1816 United States presidential election in Indiana

The 1816 United States presidential election in Indiana took place between November 1 to December 4, 1816, as part of the 1816 United States presidential election. The state legislature chose three representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for President and Vice President.

During these elections, Indiana voted in his first presidential election and cast their three electoral votes to the candidate of the democratic Republicans and the US Secretary of State James Monroe.

When the House of representatives and Senate held a joint session to count the votes for President and Vice-President on 12 Feb 1817. The vote count was conducted without incident up until the roll has reached the last state to be seen, which was Indiana. At this point, representative John W. Taylor of new York objected to the counting of votes Indianas. He argued that Congress recognized the statehood of Indiana in a joint resolution dated 11 December 1816, while the ballots of the electors were cast on 4 December 1816. He claimed that at the time of voting, was merely a territory of Indiana, not Indiana. Other representatives contradicted Taylor, asserting that the joint resolution just to recognize that Indiana had already joined the Union by forming a state Constitution and Government of 29 June 1816. These representatives noted that both the house and the Senate sitting members from Indiana, who was elected to the joint resolution, which would be unconstitutional Indiana was not able at the time of their election. Representative Samuel D. Ingham then moved that the question be postponed indefinitely. The house resolved almost unanimously, and the Senate returned to the counting of electoral votes from Indiana.
