Creating a Database of American Electoral Returns, 1788-1825

The creation of a database of American electoral returns from 1788 through 1825.

The American Antiquarian Society, in partnership with Tufts University, seeks support to digitize Philip Lampi's collection of American electoral returns, 1788-1825, the richest and most complete set of early American election returns in existence, and to mount the data on the AAS website, where they can be freely accessed by scholars, students, journalists, politicians, government employees, genealogists, local historians, and others. Over four decades, Lampi has collected varying amounts of election returns for all 24 states in the Union by 1825. This body of electoral returns is of great significance for revisiting the history of political life in the US in the first few decades under the Constitution.
