Quincy. Medicine, arise, at home all day. Electoral Colleges vote,1 much conversation with my Grandfather and George.
1. 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.
