The United States presidential election of 1792 was the second presidential election in the United States, and the first in which each of the original 13 states appointed electors (in addition to newly added states Kentucky and Vermont). It is also the only presidential election that was not held four years after the previous election.

As in 1789, President George Washington ran unopposed for a second term. Under the system in place then and through the election of 1800, each voting elector cast two votes — the recipient of the greatest number of votes was elected President, the second greatest number, Vice President. As with his first term, Washington is considered to have been elected unanimously.

The recipient of 77 electoral votes, Vice President John Adams, finished second in voting and was therefore re-elected Vice President of the United States.
