Elected Governor

Jonas Galusha

The 1815 Vermont gubernatorial election for Governor of Vermont took place in September and October, and resulted in the election of Jonas Galusha to a one-year term.[1]

The Vermont General Assembly met in Montpelier on October 12.[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 former governor Jonas Galusha had defeated incumbent Martin Chittenden to win a one-year term.[1]

In the election for lieutenant governor, the legislature's canvassing committee determined that former lieutenant governor Paul Brigham had attained a majority over incumbent William Chamberlain to win election to a one-year term.[1] According to a contemporary newspaper article, the vote totals were: Brigham, 16,942 (50.4%); Chamberlain 15,841 (47.2%); scattering, 807 (2.4%).[2]

Benjamin Swan was elected to a one-year term as treasurer, his sixteenth, 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][4]

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