We introduce a kind of electromagnetism, which we call viscoelastic- electromagnetism, to investigate viscoelastic transport phenomena. It is shown that Cartan's formalism of general relativity is essential for viscoelastic theory, and then the corresponding electric and magnetic fields are regarded as a velocity gradient and a Burgers vector density, respectively. As an application of this formalism, the St?reda formula for the Hall viscosity is presented.
