United States gubernatorial elections were held 6 November 1962 in 35 states, concurrent with the House and Senate elections.

In Minnesota, the governor was elected to a four-year term for the first time, instead of a two-year term. In North Dakota, this was the last election on a two-year cycle, before switching to a four-year term for governors.

The Democratic and Republican parties each gained seven governorships from the other party, leaving the overall partisan balance unchanged.
