The 1818 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 8.[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 Federalist Party was largely defunct by 1818, and did not nominate candidates for statewide office, though a "People's Ticket" nominated incumbents Galusha, Paul Brigham, and Benjamin Swan for governor, lieutenant governor, and treasurer while endorsing a mix of Democratic-Republicans and Federalists for lesser offices.[2] As a result of the Federalist Party's demise, the committee determined that incumbent Jonas Galusha had won a one-year term with only a scattering of votes for other candidates.[1]

In the election for lieutenant governor, the legislature's canvassing committee determined that Brigham had also won election to a one-year term.[1] With no Federalist opponent, Brigham won with a scattering of votes for other candidates.[1] According to a contemporary newspaper article, the vote totals were: Brigham, 14,609 (96.3%); scattering, 563 (3.7%).[3]

Benjamin Swan was elected to a one-year term as treasurer, his nineteenth.[1] Though nominally a Federalist, Swan was endorsed by the Democratic-Republicans, and was unopposed for reelection.[4] A contemporary newspaper article recorded the vote totals in the treasurer's race as 10,461 (99.9%) for Swan and 6 (.01%) scattering.[5]

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