Vermonters split their tickets in the midterm election, sending a Republican incumbent Gov. Phil Scott (left) to a fourth term, while electing Democrats Peter Welch (center) to the U.S. Senate and Becca Balint (right) to the U.S. House.

The 2022 midterm election is over, and this hour, Vermont Edition will hear from many of last night's winners. We'll also look at the results of votes on two constitutional amendments, and what other down-ballot races mean for the legislature in the coming year.

Our guests are:

  • Becca Balint, whose win makes her the first woman elected to Vermont's only seat in the U.S. House
  • Rep. Peter Welch, who was elected to the U.S. Senate seat soon to be vacated by outgoing Sen. Patrick Leahy
  • Gov. Phil Scott, who has secured a fourth term as governor
  • David Zuckerman, the Progressive/Democratic winner for the office of lieutenant governor

Broadcast live on Wednesday, Nov. 9, 2022, at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
