ⓘ 1888 United States presidential election in Virginia

The 1888 United States presidential election in Virginia took place on November 6, 1888, as part of the 1888 United States presidential election. Voters chose 12 representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Virginia voted for the democratic candidate, incumbent President Grover Cleveland for the Republican candidate, former U.S. Senator Benjamin Harrison. The contest in Virginia was very close and Cleveland narrowly won by a margin of just 0.53%. This was the closest the Republican party came to victory ex-Confederate state between the compromise of 1877 and Warren Harding in 1920, the victory in Tennessee, and in fact the last election with the spent reconstruction of the electorate era. So complete was the defeat of the rights of the lower classes with a new Virginia Constitution of 1902 that it was 1952, with a much larger population, before voters returned to the same numbers was observed in 1888.
