Elected Governor

Cornelius P. Van Ness

The 1823 Vermont gubernatorial election took place in September and October, and resulted in the election of Cornelius P. Van Ness to a one-year term as governor.[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] Democratic-Republican Cornelius P. Van Ness was the only major candidate.[1] The committee determined that Van Ness had easily won a one-year term against only token opposition.[1]

In the election for lieutenant governor, the committee determined that Democratic-Republican Aaron Leland had won election to a second one-year term against only scattering opposition.[1] A Vermont newspaper reported the results as: Leland, 11,758 (98.5%); scattering, 176 (1.5%).[2]

Benjamin Swan was unopposed for election to a one-year term as treasurer, his twenty-fourth.[1] Though nominally a Federalist, Swan was usually endorsed by the Democratic-Republicans and even after the demise of the Federalists Swan often ran unopposed.[3] Vermont newspapers indicated that the results were: Swan, 10,141 (99.8%); scattering, 17 (0.2%).[2]

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