Part of the city of Vermilion is located in northeastern Vermilion Township along the shoreline of Lake Erie.It is the only Vermilion Township statewide, although there is a Vermillion Township in Ashland County.

Vermilion Township was named from the Vermilion River. This township was established about 1808, and it originally extended westward all the way to the Huron River. However, that western section was later annexed onto Huron Township and Berlin Township.
The township is governed by a three-member board of trustees who are elected in November of odd-numbered years to a four-year term beginning on the following January 1. Two are elected in the year after the presidential election and one is elected in the year before it. There is also an elected township fiscal officer, who serves a four-year term beginning on April 1 of the year after the election, which is held in November of the year before the presidential election. Vacancies in the fiscal officership or on the board of trustees are filled by the remaining trustees.
