The govenor of Illinois serves as the head of the executive branch and the highest state office in Illinois. The governor is popularly elected every four years and is not subject to any term limits. The governor's main duties are to enact the laws passed by the Illinois General Assembly. The Illinois Governor must be at least 25 years old, a United States citizen, and a resident of Illinois for at least three years prior to election. Along with overseeing the executive branch of state government, the Illinois Governor also has appointment power to various public boards and state commissions and submits an annual state budget to the Illinois General Assembly for passage. Illinois Governors (like many others) also have the legal authority to grant pardons and commute sentences for convicted felons.
