Because the Girls State program is entirely non-partisan, citizens operate with mock political parties. They elect precinct, county and state party officials and write their own party platform. The National and Federal parties convened June 16, 2015, to pick their state party officials.

State Federal Party officials are Chair Cristina Pop, Vice-Chair Rachel Ogle, House Whip Gennie Mansi and Senate Whip Zoe deBeurs.

State National Party Officials are Chair Maria Duster, Vice-Chair Thao Pham, House Whip Sofia Miranda-Fred and Senate Whip Lauren Peters.
