Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The Office of the Lieutenant Governor was created in 1976. Prior to the creation of the Lieutenant Governor's office, the succession to the governorship was held by the state secretary of state. The office of Secretary of State was abolished by the legislature in 1976 and those duties given to the newly created Office of the Lieutenant Governor.
  2. ^ King lost renomination in the Democratic primary in 1898 to Brigham H. Roberts. Roberts won the 1898 election, but the House refused to seat him because he was a polygamist. There was a special election in 1900, and King was elected to complete his term until 1901.
  3. ^ Resigned to become director of the Environmental Protection Agency.
  4. ^ a b Lieutenant Governor ascended to governorship upon the resignation of his or her predecessor.
  5. ^ Resigned to become United States Ambassador to China.
