On April 23, 1819, incumbent Federalist senator Alexander Contee Hanson died. The other incumbent Senator, Robert Henry Goldsborough, ran for re-election to hold his seat. The Maryland legislature elected a successor to finish Hanson's term, as well as a Senator for the term for the other class. The two top vote-getters (both Democratic-Republicans) were declared the winners, with the first place winner, Edward Lloyd taking the Class 2 seat, which ran March 4, 1819 to March 3, 1825. The second place winner, William Pinkney, took the Class 1 seat, finishing Hanson's term which ran March 4, 1817 to March 3, 1823.
