At this time, there was still just one major party, which was the Democratic-Republicans. But there were several candidates within this party that wanted to be president.
Two main competitors emerged including John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, and William Crawford. This election featured heavy campaigning, as voting was opened up for more common people.
Andrew Jackson ended up with the most electoral votes of 99. But it wasn’t a majority. Then, John Quincy Adams had the second most with 84 electoral votes. This left the House of Representatives to vote for John Quincy Adams as the 6th president of the United States.
