1. Steuart was dismissed on August 10, after the petition of Stephen Bordley complaining of an irregular election was upheld. Bordley was determined duly elected, and took his seat.
2. Sulivane continued to act as undersheriff of Dorchester County after the date of the election was posted. He was therefore not qualified to stand for election, and was discharged on August 29, 1745.
3. The sheriff of St. Mary's County cast the deciding vote after James Mills and James Swan tied in the election. Mills attended as a delegate, but was dismissed on August 29, after the Lower House decided that the action of the sheriff was illegal.
