Unelected officials are ones that are appointed by a government official instead of being elected by voters. Many but not all unelected officials must be approved by the House and Senate. Secretaries of major departments and Supreme Court justices are just a few of the positions unelected officials fill. The Obama administration has also appointed over two dozen unelected 'czars'.

Answer by  John (9008)

Unelected officials are government officials that are appointed rather than elected. They include federal judges, members of the president's cabinet, ambassadors, and more. Both the federal government and state governments have appointed officials, although the exact ones who are appointed will vary from state to state.
