In Washington, DC, the President of the United States is the Chief Executive and appoints the heads of all executive agencies, with the approval of the US Senate.

In Texas, each of those officers is elected at-large by the people of Texas, each to 4 year terms. This divided power structure significantly weakens the power of the executive and gives more to the electorate.

Here are your elected executive officers:
