Lieutenant Governor of Alaska

This is a list of people who have served as lieutenant governor of the U.S. state of Alaska since statehood in 1959. Prior to statehood, the territorial-era Secretary of Alaska, who was appointed by the president of the United States like the governor, functioned as an acting governor or successor-in-waiting like the present-day lieutenant governor does. Waino Edward Hendrickson, the territory's last appointed Secretary, twice served as acting governor. In statehood, the position was referred to as Secretary of State until a constitutional amendment changing the name was approved by voters on August 25, 1970.[1] In Alaska, the lieutenant governor runs separately from the governor in the primaries, but after the primaries, the nominee for governor and nominee for lieutenant governor run together as a slate.
