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.
