# Lieutenant Governors with term limits

From Ballotpedia

Lieutenant Governor is subject to term limits. Most states with term limits specify that an office-holder may serve two consecutive terms. Most states do not specify that the two terms are an absolute limit, so that a former Lieutenant Governor may usually run again after a time, usually unspecified, out of office.
