63rd Due to a mistake in how the name of William J. MacDonald appeared on the ballot in Ontonagon County some votes were not included in the official count by the state board of canvassers, even though their inclusion in unofficial returns showed MacDonald had won. Subsequently, the United States House Committee on Elections unanimously reported a resolution to the full house awarding the seat to MacDonald.
