The position of lieutenant governor of Ohio was established in 1852.[1] The lieutenant governor becomes George Voinovich became the first lieutenant governor to be elected on the same ticket with the governor.

From 1852 to 1979, the lieutenant governor also served as the president of the Ohio State Senate. More recently, Ohio governors have generally named the lieutenant governor to head an agency of state government. An example of this is Bruce Edward Johnson, who served as Director of the Ohio Department of Development, as did his successor, Lee Fisher.

The 28th Lieutenant Governor of Ohio, Warren G. Harding, later served as 29th President of the United States.
