 Office of Vermont Secretary of State Deb Markowitz -- State Archives   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
After the Fourth Congressional District took eleven elections (1830 to 1832) to choose their Representative, the law was changed in 1832 so that if no majority winner emerged after two elections, a plurality would carry the third election.
It was ratified in Vermont by a convention of delegates of the people held on January 10, 1791; and by an act which Congress approved on February 18, 1791, Vermont became the fourteenth state of the Union on March 4, 1791.
Vermont, hoping for three representatives, on January 27, 1791 designated Bennington and Windham counties; Windsor and Orange counties; and Rutland, Addison, and Chittenden counties as the three congressional districts for Vermont.

 State Water Resources Research Institute Program
Vermont waters have three exotic aquatic plants at nuisance levels; purple loosestrife, a emergent plant found throughout Vermont in marshes and wet ditches; water chestnut, a floating leaf plant found primarily in the southern basin of Lake Champlain; and Eurasian watermilfoil, a submersed plant which has been reported in 42 Vermont lakes.
Eurasian watermilfoil was first recorded in Vermont in 1962 in Lake Champlain (Crosson 1987), relatively early in its spread throughout the rest of the United States and the southern provinces of Canada.
Vermont is the ideal place for this study because the Eurasian watermilfoil invasion was extensive and has been very well documented by Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation.

 History of US Reps
When Vermont held new elections as a result of no majority in the original election, the plurality winner more often than not ended up winning a majority in a subsequent runoff.
In 1832, after the particularly protracted battle in the Fourth District in 1830-2, the General Assembly compromised the democratic principle of majority rule to avoid such stalemates and changed the majority requirement, so that whichever candidate was the top vote-getter after the second runoff, whether by majority or plurality, would be declared elected.
In 1850, in Vermont’s First Congressional District, A. Miner who had come in second in the original election with 31%, won the runoff with just 39% of the vote.
