Governor Representative Ballot
Rhode Island, United States (state)
National Republican and Farmers Prox 1832 – from the contentious and indecisive statewide election of 1832. In the annual election of April 1832 no candidate for governor, lieutenant governor or senator received the required majority vote. This election failure was created because of the third party Anti Masonic candidate William Sprague. Four additional elections were conducted in 1832 (May 16th, July 18th, August 28th and November 21st) all of which failed to achieve a majority vote. In the November election the National Republican ticket dropped Lt. Governor Collins and substituted Joseph Childs in his place. At the January 1833 session of the General Assembly it was decided that those offices not filled in the 1832 elections were to be filled by the existing duly elected individuals of 1831. 18.1 cm X 12.0 cm, missing lower portion
