History of the DNC

The Democratic National Convention (DNC) was founded in 1832 by founder of the Democratic Party Martin Van Buren. The Democratic National Committe was founded in 1848 as the administrating body of both the convention and the electoral process. The aim of the convention was to select a presidential candidate for the democratic party while maintaining unity in the process.

To date, there have been 45 conventions since 1832. The last convention was hosted by Denver, Colorado in 2008.
