The Governor of Huron is the head of the executive branch of the Huron state government and the commander-in-chief of its military forces. The governor has a duty to enforce the laws of the state, to approve or veto bills enacted by the legislature, and is empowered to use a line-item veto to remove certain provisions of laws. The governor is also empowered to convene the legislature on extraordinary occasions, and has the power to unilaterally declare a state of emergency on a local or state-wide basis.

The Governor is elected to serve a four-year term. Under the State Constitution of Huron, the Governor is prohibited from succeeding his/herself, although Governors may serve unlimited non-consecutive terms. Two men (John Mead and George Baker) have served two terms, and Leslie Frost served three.

The current Governor of Huron is Matthew Tran, the first non-white Governor in state history, and the second Asian-American Governor in the United States.
