About the Vermont Election Results Archive

In 2015, the Secretary of State created this archive in order to provide an easy way for the general public to access, explore, and analyze the entire electoral history of the State of Vermont. Consolidating archived election records into this database requires a process of ongoing data inventory and extraction among a variety of historical primary sources and compilations. As we look at documents further back in time, the record becomes less comprehensive and more prone to gaps. For this reason, we have created an inventory table below to help visitors understand which contests are available as of today. The “Notes” column provides some additional detail about what data limitations one may find.
