 VT Elections



Notes: Gov. Peter Shumlin (D) won a third two-year term, topping a field of seven candidates, led by Scott Milne (R), who runs Milne Travel, and Dan Feliciano (L), a business transformation strategist.  Shumlin won several thousand more votes than Milne, but he obtained less than 50% of the vote.  As a result, under the state constitution,
it was up to the legislature to decide the outcome; the legislature met on Jan. 8, 2015 and by secret ballot voted 110-69 for Shumlin.

The Aug. 26 primaries were not competitive.  Shumlin won with 77% of the vote against one candidate and Milne with 71.7% against two candidates.

Debates included:
Sept. 13 - at Tunbridge World's Fair (>).
Sept. 23 - Vermont Public Radio, Shumlin, Milne, Feliciano and Diamondstone (>).
Oct. 9 - Vermont PBS, all seven candidates on the ballot (>). [The eclectic field of candidates attracted national attention (>)]
Oct. 29 - WPTZ Channel 5 NBC, Shumlin, Milne and Feliciano from Echo Lake Aquarium and Science Center (>).
