Electoral reform in Vermont describes how changes in electoral practices alter how election results represent the intent of Vermont voters.

Currently, Burlington, Vermont uses instant runoff voting in its elections, having voted to do so on March 1, 2005.[1] As of April 13, 2007, IRV legislation was headed for the Vermont Senate floor.[2]

Vermont has one Congressional district, so gerrymandering is not a consideration in Vermont federal races.

Vermont and Maine are the only states to allow prison inmates to vote.[3]

In 2007, H.0373 was introduced by David Zuckerman, Anne Donahue, and others in an effort to make Vermont a party to the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, but it died in the Government Operations committee.[4]
