Hendricks in five states. Kentucky, Georgia, and Missouri cast 18 electoral votes for B. Gratz Brown, of Missouri, for President; Georgia, 2 votes for C. J. Jenkins, of Georgia, and Missouri 1 vote for David Davis of Illinois, and 17 votes irregularly cast were not counted by Congress. + Count of the Electoral Commission.
