Description:

This page is maintained and dedicated to the acting Lieutenant Governor of Indiana. The office of lieutenant Governor was created by Article 5, Sec. 2 of the Indiana Constitution. The term of office is four years, the same as that of the governor. Candidates for lieutenant governor are nominated at an annual party convention. The party's nominees for governor and lieutenant governor then run as a team, ensuring that those elected will be of the same political party and governing philosophy. Under the Indiana Constitution, the lieutenant governor is charged with presiding over the Senate during its session, as well as casting deciding votes in the event of a tie. In addition, the lieutenant governor is charged with assuming the role of governor if the sitting governor becomes unable to fulfill the duties of office or if the office falls vacant due to death.
