From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Lieutenant Governor of Delaware is the second ranking executive officer of the U.S. state of Delaware. Lieutenant Governors are elected for a term of four years in the same general election as the U.S. President and take office the following January.

As in many other U.S. state legislatures, the Lieutenant Governor also serves as the President of the Delaware Senate, though he or she can only issue a vote if there is a tie on any vote.

Although in practice the candidate for Lieutenant Governor is nominated as a ticket with the candidate for Governor, the offices of Governor and Lieutenant Governor are voted on separately in Delaware. In 1972 and 1984, the Governor and Lieutenant Governor were elected from different parties.

The current Delaware Lieutenant Governor is Democrat Matthew P. Denn.

The offices of the Lieutenant Governor are at the state capital of Dover.
