  • The 1916 United States presidential election in New York took place on November 7, 1916. All contemporary 48 states were part of the 1916 United States presidential election. New York voters chose forty-five electors to the Electoral College, which selected the president and vice president.New York was won by the Republican nominee, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Charles Evans Hughes of New York, and his running mate Senator Charles W. Fairbanks of Indiana. Hughes and Fairbanks defeated the Democratic nominees, incumbent Democratic President Woodrow Wilson and Vice President Thomas R. Marshall.The former Governor of New York, Hughes won his home state fairly comfortably, taking 51.53% of the vote to Wilson's 44.51%, a victory margin of 7.02%. Coming in a distant third was Socialist candidate Allan L. Benson, who took 2.69%.New York in this era was a Republican state in presidential elections; however in 1912, a strong third party run by former Republican President Theodore Roosevelt against the incumbent Republican President William Howard Taft had split the Republican vote, and had enabled Woodrow Wilson as the Democratic candidate to win New York State's electoral votes in 1912 with a plurality of only 41% of the vote. With the Republican base re-united behind Charles Evans Hughes in 1916, New York returned to the Republican column, and delivered a fairly comfortable win to Hughes even as Wilson won re-election nationwide. Hughes’ seven percent margin of victory made New York State a strong ten percent more Republican than the national average in the 1916 election; despite this, Hamilton and Greene Counties voted for Wilson, yet would never vote Democratic again until 1964 and never do so subsequently.
