The Governor of Kansas holds the "supreme executive power" of the State as provided by the first article of the Kansas Constitution. The current Governor is Kathleen Sebelius, a member of the Democratic Party, who assumed office on January 13, 2003. She will be up for re-election to a possible second term in 2006. By constitutional provision, she cannot run for a third term. Lieutenant Governor John E. Moore was her running mate in the 2002 election.

Before 1972, the governor was elected for a term of two years. The state constitution was then amended so that beginning with the 1974 election, the governor would serve a maximum of two consecutive 4-year terms. Each term begins on the second Monday of January following the election. The lieutenant governor is subject to the same limitations and runs on a combined ticket with the governor. A term limit is a provision of a constitution, statute, or bylaw which limits the number of terms a person may serve in a particular elected office. ...


If the governor becomes incapacitated, the lieutenant governor assumes the duties of the governor. However if both offices become vacant, the line of succession is determined by the legislature. Under present law, the president of the Senate would be next in line to assume the governorship, followed by the Speaker of the House.
