The 1817 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 9.[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 incumbent Jonas Galusha had defeated U.S. Senator Isaac Tichenor to win a one-year term.[1]

In the election for lieutenant governor, the legislature's canvassing committee determined that incumbent Paul Brigham had attained a majority over former lieutenant governor William Chamberlain to win election to a one-year term.[1] According to a contemporary newspaper article, the vote totals were: Brigham, 13,307 (63.2%); Chamberlain 7,748 (36.8%).[1]

Benjamin Swan was elected to a one-year term as treasurer, his eighteenth.[1] Swan, a Federalist was also endorsed by the Democratic-Republicans, and so was effectively unopposed for reelection.[2] According to contemporary newspaper articles, Swan received 16,962 votes, and no votes were recorded for any other candidates.[3]

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