House and Senate District officers – Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary - and SubDistrict officers – Captain and Co-Captain are elected. Each SubDistrict also selects a Finance Chair to be appointed.

In addition, SubDistrict representatives to a host of DPOD committees are selected – including Rules, Credentials, Platform, Permanent Organization, Fund-Raising, Public Policy, Diversity and Outreach, Technology, and Get-Out-The-Vote – essentially all of the moving parts of the Democratic Party of Denver. SubDistrict representatives to various State party committees are also selected. All crucially important as we move toward the 2020 general election – and a BLUE TSUNAMI!

Any REGISTERED DEMOCRAT is eligible to fill any of the roles in their respective SubDistrict.
