While building an extensive law practice, Upham became very active in local and state politics. In 1846, he served as president of the first State Constitutional Convention in Madison. His two terms as mayor were marked by disturbances resulting from the temperance movement. Shortly after serving as U.S. Attorney for Wisconsin, he retired due to poor health.
