As the girls arrive at Girls State, they are assigned to one of two political parties. The residence hall where they live during the program is their designated county and the floor on which they live is their city.
The students will file petitions for candidacy for a variety of offices — from governor to council — and participate in the election process. After elections and inaugurations, they put government into action.
