The 1797 Vermont gubernatorial election for Governor of Vermont took place throughout September, and resulted in the election of Isaac Tichenor to a one-year term.[1]

The Vermont General Assembly met in Windsor 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]

Thomas Chittenden, who had been governor from 1778 to 1789, and again starting in 1790, died in August 1797.[1] Paul Brigham, the incumbent lieutenant governor, served as governor from Chittenden's death until the election of a successor.[1]

In the popular election, no candidate received a majority.[1] In keeping with the Vermont Constitution, the Vermont General Assembly was required to make a selection.[1] On October 13, the Assembly chose Isaac Tichenor and a committee was appointed to notify him.[1] Tichenor indicated that he would notify the General Assembly the following day as to whether he would accept the position.[1] On October 14, Tichenor indicated his acceptance.[1] He appeared before the Assembly on October 15 and took his oath of office.[1]

In the election for lieutenant governor, the voters selected Paul Brigham for a second one-year term.[1] The freemen also re-elected Samuel Mattocks as treasurer, his eleventh one-year term.[1] The names of candidates and balloting totals for statewide offices were not recorded.[1]
