The electoral college awarded Jackson 99 votes, JQA 84, Crawford 41, and Clay 37. JQA won all of New England, the great majority of New York votes, and a few scattered tallies. Since no candidate won a majority of the electoral votes, the election was thrown into the House of Representatives. See Bemis, JQA , 2:30.
