We investigate the vortex structure in chiral p-wave superconductors by the Bogoliubov-de Gennes theory on a tight-binding model. We calculate the spatial structure of the pair potential and electronic state around a vortex, including the anisotropy of the Fermi surface and superconducting gap structure. The differences of the vortex structure between (formula presented)-wave and (formula presented)-wave superconductors are clarified in the vortex lattice state. We also discuss the winding (formula presented) case of the (formula presented)-wave superconductivity.
