Richard Skinner

The 1820 Vermont gubernatorial election for Governor of Vermont took place in September and October, and resulted in the election of Richard Skinner 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] With incumbent Jonas Galusha not a candidate for reelection, and the Federalist Party defunct, Democratic-Republican Richard Skinner was the only major candidate.[2] The committee determined that Skinner had easily won a one-year term against only scattering opposition.[1]

In the election for lieutenant governor, incumbent Paul Brigham was not a candidate for reelection and the committee determined that Democratic-Republican William Cahoon had been elected to a one-year term.[2] Vote totals were not recorded, but a contemporary newspaper account indicated that only 1,007 votes were cast for scattering opposition.[2]

Benjamin Swan was elected to a one-year term as treasurer, his twenty-first.[1] Though nominally a Federalist, Swan was usually endorsed by the Democratic-Republicans and often ran unopposed.[2] Vote totals for the 1820 election were not recorded, but an October 17 newspaper article indicated that Swan had been unanimously reelected, with no votes for any other candidates.[2]

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