Vermont's 2nd congressional district

"VT-2" redirects here. VT-2 may also refer to U.S. Route 2 in Vermont.

Vermont's 2nd congressional district is an obsolete district. It was created upon Vermont's admission as the 14th State in 1791. It was eliminated after the 1930 Census. Its last Congressman was Ernest W. Gibson, who was redistricted into the At-large district.

Representatives

Vermont had district representation upon admission as the 14th State on March 4, 1791. From 1813-1821, beginning with the 13th Congress, Vermont elected its US Representatives statewide At-Large. After the 16th Congress, Vermont returned to electing Congressmen from districts. Vermont returned to a single At-large district after losing 2nd Representative after the 1930 Census
