The candidates standing in the election were Lord Morpeth representing the Whigs and the Honourable John Stuart Wortley for the Tories. Unlike the secret ballots of today a poll book was published after the 1835 West Riding election detailing who had been eligible to vote and who they had voted for.
The database includes the name of all those within the Sheffield Polling District who were eligible to vote, their residence at the time, and who they voted for.
The election was won by Lord Viscount Morpeth, also known as George William Frederick Howard, with a majority of 2,807 votes. The actual total votes cast was Morpeth: 9066, Wortley: 6,259.
