The Cygnian federal election of 1792 was the first congressional election. It was held from Saturday 1 to Saturday 15 December 1792, and was conducted under the new Imperial Constitution, which had been ratified earlier in 1792. In the election, provisional Chancellor Frederick Northam, who led the Federalists to a landslide victory, was appointed to the first of three formal terms as Chancellor. It is widely agreed that the Federalists' strength in the 12 years of Cygnia's existence was greatly assisted by Northam's enormous popularity in the aftermath of the Cygnian War of Independence.
