Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The Commissioner of Agriculture and Labor was an elected official who headed the state Department of Agriculture and Labor. The office was established by the state constitution in 1889 but was split into two separate offices—the Commissioner of Labor and the Commissioner of Agriculture—in 1966, when the two departments also split due to a constitutional change approved by the electorate in 1964.
  2. ^ Office established in 1919.
  3. ^ Named North Dakota Railroad Commission until 1940; Railroad Commissioners might have been elected on a non-partisan ballot.
  4. ^ George E. Adams won the 1892 election but did not qualify for the office; Williams was appointed to the position instead.
  5. ^ a b c d e f g Died in office.
  6. ^ a b c d e Resigned.
  7. ^ Recalled.
  8. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l The office was an appointed position from 1919 until 1940. Partisan affiliation given is that of corresponding Governor.
  9. ^ After Moodie's inauguration on January 7, 1935, it was revealed that he had voted in a 1932 municipal election in Minnesota. In order to be eligible to serve as governor of North Dakota, an individual has to have lived in the state for five consecutive years before the election. The state Supreme Court determined that Moodie was ineligible to serve, and he was removed from office on February 16, 1935.
  10. ^ a b Was a first appointed by a Democratic governor, although beginning in 1940 he ran on a nonpartisan ballot.
  11. ^ With the 50-50 chamber, the Democrats and Republicans negotiated a power-sharing agreement. The Democrats got the position of Speaker under Oscar Solberg, and the Republicans got control of the Appropriations Committee, and the rest of the committees were 50-50 in membership and control. p.358 p.24
  12. ^ Appointed by Governor to fill vacancy.
