We will learn Tuesday whether Vermonters will give Phil Scott a third two-year term in office or if challenger David Zuckerman will get the job.

Both candidates have a track record of success across Vermont in previous elections. But as they go head to head this year, something will have to give.

Here’s what we’re talking about. This is an interactive look at the town-by-town results from the 2018 governor’s race. Towns colored in red are where Republican Phil Scott won a majority of votes. Towns colored in blue had more voters for his Democratic opponent, Christine Hallquist.

Compare that to the map of how David Zuckerman did in the 2018 lieutenant governor’s race. Zuckerman is represented in blue and Republican Don Turner is in red.
