This page is a content-and-style guide about how to create articles for State Legislative Auditors.

State offices vary from state to state. In particular, for auditors some states classify the office as a state executive office, while in others they are a legislative office. While both offices are similar in function, a legislative auditor functions primarily under the state legislature.

State executive offices, on the other hand, represent a state's executive branch, charged with implementing and enforcing the laws made by state legislatures. The governor is the chief executive of a state's government, and other executive officers ordinarily report to him or her.

Ballotpedia has identified 20 legislative auditor offices and 38 state executive auditor offices. A total of 7 states have both auditor offices.
