The Colorado Democratic Party is responsible for arranging and staging the state convention in Presidential years and the state assembly every two years.

The state assembly designates candidates for statewide offices, including the offices of Governor, Attorney-General, Colorado, Treasurer, C.U. Regent At-Large, and United States Senator. The party also adopts its platform at the state assembly.

It is their goal to create an ethical government and society that is fair, open and accountable to all people. They vow to accept fundamental responsibility to all future generations and to pursue only policies that are sustainable and maintain or improve global well-being.
