The 1896 United States presidential election in Vermont took place on November 3, 1896. Voters chose four representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Vermont overwhelmingly voted for the Republican nominee, former Governor of Ohio William McKinley, over the Democratic nominee, former U.S. Representative from Nebraska William Jennings Bryan. With 80.08 percent of the popular vote, Vermont would be McKinley’s strongest victory in terms of percentage in the popular vote [1]. McKinley won Vermont by a landslide margin of 63.42 percent, which is the second-best performance by the Republican Party in any presidential election behind only Barry Goldwater in Mississippi in 1964 – ironically the first election when the Green Mountain State deserted the GOP.
