Rutherford Hayes was elected as a result of the decision of a special electoral commission since initially neither candidate had the requisite 185 electoral votes. Samuel J. Tilden won the popular vote and received 184 of the 185 required for election, to Hayes' 165 electoral votes. To settle the dispute, Congress appointed a special committee consisting of five House members, five Senators and five Supreme Court justices.
