A Vermont Method of Filling Vacancies in State Legislature Amendment was on the 1924 ballot in Vermont as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved, becoming Article 38 of the Amendments to the Vermont Constitution.

Article 38 amended Section 13 of Chapter II of the Vermont Constitution to say:

In order that the freemen of the state may enjoy the benefit of election as equally as may be, each inhabited town in this state may, forever hereafter, hold elections therein and choose each one Representative to represent them in the House of Representatives. Provided, however, that the General Assembly shall have the power to regulate by law the mode of filling all vacancies in the House of Representatives which shall happen by death, resignation or otherwise.
