  • State party organizations are vital centers of party strength. With decentralization of American parties, though, states vary in party organizational schemes and what powers each level exercises.
  • State conventions write party rules and adopt a party platform. They may choose party committees and leaders and may nominate candidates for office or validate voter's primary election choices. In presidential election years, they choose delegates to the national convention and choose presidential electors.
