Pennsylvania's Executive Branch Officials 

Pennsylvania's executive branch is headed by the Governor and Lt. Governor who are elected on the same ticket.  The PA Attorney General, Auditor General, and Treasurer are also elected by state voters, and will be on the ballot in 2024.

There are many other statewide administrative offices, like Secretary of Education, and Secretary of Labor & Commerce,  who are not elected.  They are nominated by the Governor and approved by the State Senate, much like cabinet members and appointed officials in the US government.
