Office of the Lieutenant Governor

This is the official website of the Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. Similar to the official Governor’s website, this website includes news and press releases from the Lieutenant Governor’s office. Another useful section is a history of the office of Lieutenant Governor, which talks about the changing role of the Lieutenant Governor. The position stretches back to colonial times: the King of England appointed a Governor, who then appointed a Lieutenant Governor. Learning about the Governor’s second-in-command helps create a better understanding of how executive power is shared.
