ⓘ 1900 United States Senate special election in Vermont

The United States Senate elections of 1900 and 1901 were elections in which the Democratic Party gained two seats in the United States Senate, and which corresponded with President William McKinleys landslide re-election. By the beginning of the next Congress, however, the Republicans gained five additional seats, giving them a ten-seat majority.

As this election was prior to ratification of the seventeenth amendment, senators were chosen by the legislative assemblies of the States.
