US Election 1796

In this election, George Washington refused to run for a third term. So unlike past elections, the presidency was mostly up in the air without a clear winner.

This election included Tennessee. But it was a two party system between the Democratic Republicans and Federalists.

John Adams claimed the spot as second President of the United after receiving 71 electoral votes. But it was a close race as Thomas Jefferson finished with 68 electoral votes.
