~ 1861 Presidential election ~

The 1861 Confederate States presidential election of November 6, 1861, was the only presidential election held under the Permanent Constitution of the Confederate States of America. Jefferson Davis, who had been elected president and Alexander H. Stephens, who had been elected vice president, under the Provisional Constitution, were elected to six-year terms that would have lasted from February 22, 1862 until February 22, 1868. However, the terms expired on May 5, 1865 instead when the Confederate government dissolved, with Davis and Stephens both leaving office without successors.


The Provisional Congress of the Confederate States met at Montgomery, Alabama, on February 4, 1861. A provisional constitution was adopted on February 8, 1861.


On February 9, 1861, Jefferson Davis was elected Provisional President and Alexander H. Stephens was elected Provisional Vice President. Stephens took office on February 11 and Davis took office on February 18, 1861. On March 11, 1861, a permanent Constitution was adopted.


The election effectively confirmed the decision that had been made by the Provisional Confederate Congress earlier in the year.


Davis remained President until May 5, 1865, when the Confederate government was officially dissolved.
