The Lieutenant Governor of Hawaiʻi, concurrently the Secretary of State of Hawaiʻi, is the assistant chief executive of that U.S. state and its various agencies and departments, as provided in the Hawaiʻi State Constitution Article V, Sections 2 though 6. The Lieutenant Governor is elected by popular suffrage of residents of the state on the same ticket as the Governor of Hawaiʻi. The Lieutenant Governor becomes acting Governor upon the absence of the Governor from the state, or if the Governor becomes disabled from duty. Historically, Lieutenant Governors were members of either the Hawaiʻi Democratic Party or Hawaiʻi Republican Party.
The Lieutenant Governor of Hawaiʻi is limited to two four-year terms. Inauguration takes place on the first Monday in December following a gubernatorial election. A single term ends at noon four years later. The Lieutenant Governor must be thirty years old and be a resident of Hawaiʻi for five consecutive years previous to election. Unlike other states, the office of Lieutenant Governor of Hawaiʻi is a full-time position and requires that the Lieutenant Governor be barred from other professions or paid positions during the term.
