Mellerud Municipality (Melleruds kommun) is a municipality in Västra Götaland County by Lake Vänern in Sweden. Its seat is located in the town of Mellerud.

The amalgamation leading to the present municipality took place in 1969 when "old" Mellerud (instituted as a market town (köping) in 1908) was merged with Bolstad, Kroppefjäll and Skållerud. Before the municipal reform of 1952 there were ten entities in the area.
