A Vermont Suffrage for Women Amendment was on the 1924 ballot in Vermont as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved, becoming Article 37 of the Amendments to the Vermont Constitution.

Article 37 amended Section 34 of Chapter II of the Vermont Constitution to say:

Every person of the full age of twenty-one years, who is a natural born citizen of this or some one of the United States or has been naturalized agreeably to the Acts of Congress, having resided in this state for the space of one whole year next before the election of Representatives, and who is of a quiet and peaceable behavior, and will take the following oath or affirmation, shall be entitled to all the privileges of a freeman of this state:
"You solemnly swear (or affirm) that whenever you give your vote or suffrage, touching any matter that concerns the State of Vermont, you will do it so as in your conscience you shall judge will most conduce to the best good of the same, as established by the Constitution, without fear or favor of any man.''
