Exceptionally rare and original, 1836 Martin Van Buren / Richard M. Johnson Presidential Election Campaign Ballot from the State of Virginia. The Ballot is titled simply “Electoral Ticket”. This original 1836 Presidential Campaign Ballot measures approx. 5 5/8" by 9" and features text below the title that reads “For President Martin Van Buren” and “For Vice President, Richard M. Johnson”. Below this text are listed the Democratic / Jacksonian Presidential Electors from the state of Virginia. Virginia played a major role in the 1836 Presidential election – while Virginia's 23 electors were all pledged to Van Buren and his running mate, Richard Mentor Johnson, all 23 of them became faithless electors due to dissension related to Johnson’s interracial relationship with a slave and refused to vote for Johnson, instead casting their votes for former South Carolina senator William Smith. This left Johnson one electoral vote short of the 148-vote majority required to be elected. Thus, in accordance with the Twelfth Amendment to the United States Constitution, the Senate decided between the top two vote recipients, and chose Johnson over Francis Granger This rare and original, 1836 Martin Van Buren Presidential Campaign Ballot is in very good condition – intact and complete with some age toning, some edge wear and some edge creases.

Important Notes about Shipping Charges: The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by eBay and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
