The role of the Lt. Governor of North Carolina is unique in that it is the only elected office which works in both the executive and legislative branches. They assist the Governor and are next in line of succession. The Lt. Governor also serves as the President of the State Senate, can cast tie-breaking votes there, is on the State Board of Education, NC Board of Community Colleges, and the Military Affairs Commission.
