State Governors

In the table below, Seat Up indicates the year in which the governor's term ends. The current term ends in January of the given year for all states except Alaska, Hawaii and Kentucky, where the term ends in December of the election year. The notation (term limits) after the year indicates that the current governor is ineligible to seek re-election in that year; the notation (retiring) indicates that the current governor has announced their intention not to seek re-election at the end of the term or to run for another office.
