The Ohio Constitution of 1803 established the Ohio Governor's Office.

The National Governor's Association ranks the powers of each state's governor in relation to the state's legislature. The Ohio governor has repeatedly ranked as strong. The National Governor's Association utilizes six categories to determine this ranking:

  1. Tenure: Ohio has two four-year terms with only two consecutive terms permitted: strong.
  2. Appointment power: The governor has appointment power for most offices with legislative approval: strong.
  3. Budget powers: Governor has sole control of making the state"
