These are tables of congressional delegations from Vermont to the United States Senate and United States House of Representatives.

Vermont is the only State that has never sent a woman to Congress.[1][2] Despite its status as a heavily Democratic-majority state, it has only sent one Democratic United States Senator to congress in its entire history; Patrick Leahy, currently serving.

The current dean of the Vermont delegation is Senator and President pro tempore Patrick Leahy, having served in the Senate since 1975.
