The partisan breakdowns shown are ones which took effect following the general elections in the specified year.

[1] Tom Bakk and David Tomassoni were re-elected as Democrats in the 2020 election, but switched to Independent immediately after (34 R, 31 D, 2 I)..
[2] In January 2008, Democrat Kevin Dahle was elected in a special election to succeed Republican Tom Neuville (22 R, 45 D)..
[3] A series of special elections and party switches led to the composition in the 2000 session (25 R, 41D, 1 I)..
[4] After a constitutional amendment in 1912, the Minnesota Legislature was nonpartisan until 1973. Figures represent "Conservative" and Liberal" rather than party labels until the 1972 results.
[5] Five Republicans do not caucus with the Republican minority.
[6] Four Republicans announced on December 8, 2018, they would not join the Republican caucus in the 91st Legislature and would instead form their own caucus, the "New House Republican Caucus.
[7] In July 2008, Republican incumbent Ron Erhardt became an independent (48 R, 85 D, 1 I).
[8] A party switch from Republican to Independent by Doug Reuter led to the composition in the 2000 session (70 R, 63 D, 1 I).
[9] With the split chamber, a power-sharing agreement was negotiated. A Republican Speaker, Rod Searle, was elected, but Democrats received control of most committees. The tie was broken when a Republican, Robert Pavlak, was expelled from the chamber on May 19, 1979 on a party-line vote due to legal and ethical violations. The agreement of shared power held through the end of the year's session two days later, despite the Democrats' 67-66 majority. A special election was held for Pavlak's seat. A Democrat, Frank J. Rodriguez, Jr., was elected, giving the Democrats a constitutional majority (R 66, D 68).
[10] After a constitutional amendment in 1912, the Minnesota Legislature was nonpartisan until 1973. Figures represent "Conservative" and Liberal" rather than party labels until the 1972 results.
