Where can I find a list of political offices in the US, held at the state level, that are appointed rather than elected?

  • This will be an exceedingly long list. As a comparison, there are over 8800 Schedule C appointments in the federal government. While I can't say multiply that by 50, you will have redundancies. Feb 7, 2013 at 3:30
  • @AffableGeek A few examples would do. I don't need an exhaustive list. Feb 7, 2013 at 3:36

    @Web_Designer do you have a specific state in mind? This will certainly very from state to state. Feb 7, 2013 at 14:00

It would probably vary wildly by state. I did find this list for Texas. The State Controllers Office notes that the govenor will appoint about 3,000 positions. In California, they have a list of Appointed State Officials that have salaries set by statute, but I couldn't find a complete listing.
