1864 Presidential Election

1864 Election Results
  Candidate Party Electoral Votes Popular Votes
  Abraham Lincoln (I) Republican 212 2,213,665
  George B. McClellan Democratic 21 1,805,237

In the United States Presidential election of 1864, Abraham Lincoln was re-elected as president. Lincoln ran under the National Union banner against his former top Civil War general, the Democratic candidate, George B. McClellan. McClellan was the “peace candidate” but did not personally believe in his party’s platform.

The 1864 election occurred during the Civil War; none of the states loyal to the Confederate States of America participated.

Republicans loyal to Lincoln, in opposition to a group of Republican dissidents who nominated John C. Frémont, joined with a number of War Democrats to form the National Union Party. The new political party was formed to accommodate the War Democrats.

On November 8, Lincoln won by over 400,000 popular votes and easily clinched an electoral majority. Several states allowed their citizens serving as soldiers in the field to cast ballots, a first in United States history. Soldiers in the Army gave Lincoln more than 70% of their vote.

This was the first election since the re-election of Andrew Jackson in 1832 that an incumbent president won re-election. Lincoln’s second term was ended just 6 weeks after inauguration by his assassination.

1864 Election Facts
  • Welcome: Kansas, Nevada and West Virginia become states during this election cycle
  • Due to secession, southern states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia don’t participate
  • Vice-Presidential Succession: Lincoln died from an assassin’s bullet on April 15, 1865, replaced by Andrew Johnson
  • Admitted just prior to the election, Nevada ended up with only 2 Electoral Votes when the 3rd Elector was snowbound in Colorado. Since the new state’s legislature had not yet met, no mechanism was in place to select a replacement.
