Presidents who cast Electoral Votes
Posted January 25, 2005 at 02:00pm by Chronicler

I am aware of four times in which a President cast an Electoral Vote. In my first Political Quiz, I asked a question about this. The following is a list of these instances:

1) John Adams was chosen as a Federalist Elector in Massachusetts in 1820. He voted for James Monroe for President. Adams served as the Chairman of the meeting of the Electors in Boston that year.

2) James Madison was chosen as a Federalist Elector in 1789 and voted for George Washington.

3) William Henry Harrison was elected on an anti-caucus ticket in Ohio in 1820 and voted for James Monroe for President. He was then re-elected in 1824 on the Henry Clay ticket.

[Note that in the quiz I did not offer 1824 as a choice. In thinking of WHH, I forgot that he served twice.]

Does anyone know of other instances of a President casting an Electoral Vote?
