*Lieutenant Governor

The table also indicates the historical party composition in the:

For years in which a presidential election was held, the table indicates which party's candidate the state's electoral votes.

The parties are as follows: Democratic (D), Independent (I), Nonpartisan (NP), and Republican (R).

For a particular year, the noted partisan composition is that which either took office during that year or which maintained the office througout the entire year. Only changes made outside of regularly scheduled elections are noted as affecting the partisan composition during a particular year. Shading is determined by the final result of any mid-cycle changes in partisan affiliation.
