The Lieutenant Governor of North Dakota is a political office in North Dakota. The Lieutenant Governor's duty is to preside as President of the Senate, and is responsible for legislative relations, the state budget and agribusiness development. In the event the office of the Governor becomes vacant, the Lieutenant Governor assumes that office and appoints a replacement lieutenant.

The current Lieutenant Governor is Drew Wrigley. With the election of Governor John Hoeven to one of North Dakota's Senate seats in November 2010, North Dakota state law provided that Lieutenant Governor Jack Dalrymple automatically assumed the governorship upon Hoeven's resignation and was allowed to appoint a successor to the vacant position. On November 4, 2010, Dalrymple announced he would appoint former North Dakota U.S. Attorney Drew Wrigley as the new Lieutenant Governor. Dalrymple and Wrigley were sworn into their new positions during a joint session of the North Dakota Legislative Assembly on December 7, 2010.[1]

Before 1974, the Lieutenant Governor of North Dakota was elected separately from the Governor. To avoid hostile relations between a Lieutenant Governor and Governor from different parties, the process was changed to where the Governor and Lieutenant are elected together on a joint ballot and are of the same party.
