Vermont 2024 Presidential Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions:
Democrats   Republicans


Qualified parties are Democratic, Republican, Progressive, Libertarian, and Green Mountain Peace & Justice (formerly Liberty Union) parties. The Green Mountain Party is not affiliated with any other party.

Vermont permits the use of placeholder candidates in the primary. If the winning candidate withdraws, parties have a week to nominate replacements for the November ballot.

If no candidate receives 50% of the vote in the November General Election for Governor, Lieutenant-Governor, or Treasurer, the state Legislature chooses the next incumbent.

CHAPTER II, Section 47, paragraph 3 of the CONSTITUTION OF VERMONT reads as follows: "If, at any time, there shall be no election, of Governor, Lieutenant-Governor, or Treasurer, of the State, the Senate and House of Representatives shall by a joint ballot, elect to fill the office, not filled as aforesaid, one of the three candidates for such office (if there be so many) for whom the greatest number of votes shall have been returned."

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from a legal election authority that the person has been officially certified to appear on the ballot.

Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.

"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.

When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.

If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
