The 1814 Vermont gubernatorial election for Governor of Vermont took place in September and October, and resulted in the election of Martin Chittenden to a one-year term.[1]

The Vermont General Assembly met in Montpelier on October 13.[1] The Vermont House of Representatives appointed a committee to review the votes of the freemen of Vermont for governor, lieutenant governor, treasurer, and members of the governor's council.[1] The committee determined that neither Jonas Galusha nor Martin Chittenden had attained the majority required by the Vermont Constitution.[1] In such cases, the governor is chosen by the combined vote of the Vermont General Assembly.[1]

On October 14, the General Assembly met to select the governor.[1] In secret balloting, Chittenden was elected to his second one-year term by a vote of 123 to 91, with one vote counted as scattering.[1]

In the election for lieutenant governor, the legislature's canvassing committee determined that neither William Chamberlain nor Paul Brigham had attained a majority.[1] According to contemporary newspaper articles, the vote totals were: Chamberlain, 16,648 (49.1%); Brigham, 16,598 (49.0%); scattering, 655 (1.9%).[2] The contest was decided by the General Assembly, which elected Chamberlain to a second one-year term by a vote of 118 to 91.[1]

Benjamin Swan was elected to a one-year term as treasurer, his fifteenth, though the vote totals were not recorded.[1] Swan, a Federalist was also endorsed by the Democratic-Republicans, and so was effectively unopposed for reelection.[3]

In the race for governor, the results of the popular vote were reported as follows.[1]
