1827 Georgia's 2nd congressional district special election
|Elections in Georgia|
From 1792 to 1824, Georgia had elected its representatives at-large. In 1826, for that election only, Georgia switched to using districts. In the new 2nd district, John Forsyth was re-elected to a 3rd term. Some time after the election, Forsyth resigned, having been elected Governor, and a special election was held for his replacement.
