September 11, 1804 – Election to Decide Second Stage
The election took place for the Indiana Territory to enter the second stage of Territorial government on September 11, 1804. The only county that did not vote was Wayne County in current Michigan. As it appeared that a majority of freeholders in that county favored the change and the remainder of the counties had voted 198 – 51 to move ahead. Harrison deemed that the citizens had approved the move to second stage, which entitled them to have an elected assembly to replace the current appointed one. Harrison decreed that the nine members of this assembly would be allocated in this manner:
Knox County – 2
St. Clair – 1
Randolph County – 1
Wayne County – 3
Clark County – 1
Wayne County – 3
Dearborn County – 1
The election would take place on January 3, with the elected representatives meeting at Vincennes on February 1. At that time the Assembly would choose members to sit on the Legislative Council.
