ⓘ 1886 United States Senate election in Vermont

The United States Senate elections of 1886 and 1887 were elections that had the Republican Party lose two seats in the United States Senate. At the beginning of the 50th Congress, therefore, Republicans had the slimmest possible majority due to a vacant Democratic seat: 38 out of 75 seats. Once that vacancy was filled, Republicans maintained control as the single Readjuster Senator caucused with them.

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