    Vermont voters will be electing a governor, U.S. senator, U.S House member and all 180 members of the Vermont Legislature.

    Probably the most closely watched election this year is the contest between incumbent Republican Gov. Phil Scott and his Democratic challenger Christine Hallquist.

    Independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is seeking his third-term in the Senate. He's being challenged by Manchester businessman Lawrence Zupan.
