The United States presidential election, 1824 was held from 26 October to 2 December 1824. Four Democratic-Republican Party candidates ran for the presidency: John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, William H. Crawford, and Henry Clay, and it was the first election where the popular vote was counted, as no candidate secured a majority of the vote. Jackson received the most, with 99 votes, while Adams received 84, Crawford received 41, and Clay won 37. Under the 12th Amendment, the US House of Representatives chose Adams as the new president, and the Democratic-Republican Party split into Adams and Clay's National Republican Party and Jackson's Democratic Party.
