United States elections, 1832

The 1832 United States general election elected the members of the 23rd United States Congress. Taking place during the Second Party System, elections were contested between Andrew Jackson's Democratic Party and opponents of Jackson, including the National Republicans.

In the Presidential election, Democratic President Andrew Jackson defeated National Republican Senator Henry Clay of Kentucky.[1]

Following the 1830 census, the House increased in size, adding 27 seats. Opponents of Jackson maintained the same number of seats, but the Democrats won several seats, increasing their majority.[2]

In the Senate, the anti-Jackson faction won moderate gains, taking the majority in the Senate.[3]
