There were two parties in the Election of 1800, the Federalists that was founded by Alexander Hamilton, but led by John Adams and The Democratic - Republucans founded by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.
Jefferson and Burr had to go to the Electoral College, so that the House of Representatives could vote who the next President and vice President will be.
John Marshall was the Chief Justice who picked what cases to hear and how to vote on the cases he has heard.
Not only is Jefferson President, John Burr was elected Vice President!
After the House of Representatives did not determine a winner after 35 votes, the 36th vote was where Jefferson won! This was Jefferson's inauguration and where he had an important incumbent as being president.
