The 1786 Vermont Republic gubernatorial election took place throughout September, and resulted in the re-election of Thomas Chittenden to a one-year term.[1]

The Vermont General Assembly met in Rutland on October 12.[1] The Vermont House of Representatives appointed a committee to examine the votes of the freemen of Vermont for governor, lieutenant governor, treasurer, and members of the governor's council.[1] In the race for governor, Thomas Chittenden was re-elected to a one-year term, his ninth.[1]

In the election for lieutenant governor, no candidate received a majority.[1] As required by the Vermont Constitution, the Vermont General Assembly convened on October 13 to make a choice.[1] The balloting by the Assembly resulted in the selection of Paul Spooner for a fifth one-year term.[1] Spooner subsequently declined the office.[1] On October 14, the General Assembly selected Joseph Marsh, who began performing the duties in February 1787.[1]

The election for treasurer also resulted in no candidate obtaining a majority.[1] As with the lieutenant governor's office, the Vermont Constitution required the General Assembly to choose.[1] On October 13, the Assembly chose Samuel Mattocks for treasurer, the first time since the republic's founding that Ira Allen was not selected.[1] The names of candidates and balloting totals were not recorded.[1] According to contemporary newspaper articles, Chittenden was re-elected "by a respectable majority."[2]
