It is in the grass.
As I am well versed in structuralism, I know first hand how form can affect the final outcome. As I thought long and hard about the Write-in methodology, I also thought long and hard about the campaign structure. I decided on a bottom/top model.
The keystone is set at the City Coordinator position and goes up through the Regional Director. Each level has age requirements and specific duties. I have done my best again to avoid redundancy as to run a lean function model from start to finish.
As such, I have set a few ground rules to make sure everyone understands their place in the food chain.
1. At least one half of the cities in a county must have coordinators before there can be a county coordinator.
2. At least one half of all counties must have a coordinator before there can be a congressional coordinator.
3. At least one half of all congressional districts must have a coordinator before there can be a State Director.
4. At least one half of the states within a region must have a Director before there can be a Regional Director.
5. All coordinators must have at least one alternate to take their place in duty or in proxy vote.
6. The volunteers within any given domain should be held responsible for voting each coordinator to that position.
Here is the Campaign Regional Map which indicates how each region is separated accordingly.
I am well aware of the doubts some may carry when dealing with a de-centralized model as this, and I can understand your hesitation. But I would remind each of you that this form is the utility of the theory itself: being a citizen in a Republic is hard work. Embrace the ideal and make it real.
This form of organization will allow each of you to make the campaign your own. Each of you can become a campaign artist. Create at your own desire.
Hierarchy of organization
1. Coordinator for City/town/village
2. Coordinator for County/Parish
3. Coordinator for Congressional District or elections District*
4. Director of State
5. Director of Region
I expect the coordinators for a city to vote or appoint the coordinator for the County.
I expect the coordinators for a county to vote or appoint the Coordinator for Congressional District or elections District*
I expect the Coordinators for Congressional District or elections District to vote or appoint Director of State.
I expect the Director of each state to vote or appoint the Director of Region
Notes on organizational chart
Each Region will make an attempt to use "Democratic Rules of Order" at all formal or informal meetings.
No one person may hold any two coordinator positions at the same time.
Promotion is allowable as long as it is voted upon or the appointment is generally accepted in that domain. Quorums are at the discretion of the city coordinators involved.
The amount of time and effort per coordinator is dictated by level. As you ascend you are expected to donate more time per month to the campaign effort.
Coordinator for City/town/village (ground soldier)
: Responsible for voter reach-out programs.
These programs include voter registration, candidate information, and volunteer recruitment. These people should know the candidates and what they stand for better than anyone on the chart. (Five hours of work per week during campaign)
Coordinator for County
: Responsible for coordinating events and media contacts in their domain and domains that connect to their own domain. They should know every mode of contact to every newspaper, radio station, and Television station in their domain. They should avoid redundancy and candidate decay when possible. (Seven hours of work per week during campaign)

Main goal here is fundraising*. The modes of collection is at the discretion of the coordinator. This person should have some experience with political campaign law. This person will be responsible for financial disclosure per month in their domain. (Ten hours of work per week during campaign)
Director of State
Main responsibility is meeting requirement for meeting criteria per state so write in votes count. This includes Presidential Elector recruitment. This also includes setting up a line of communication with the SOS elections division. In states that don’t allow write in votes, there will be no need for this position to exist unless the regional director decides otherwise. This person should have experience having worked on a campaign before as well as being an expert in ballot access for their respective state. (Twelve hours of work per week during campaign)
Director of Region
Main responsibility is to act as a liaison between campaign organization, the Federal Elections Commission, and the SOS elections division per states in their respective region. They should know every means of contact to each. (Fourteen hours of work per week during campaign)

Director of State will report of Ballot Access manager
Director of Region will report to Legal Counsel (when necessary)
I will be responsible for appointing people to the positions of Treasurer, Ballot Access Manager, and obtaining legal counsel when necessary. As an MBA in Marketing, I will be responsible for implementing the marketing strategy for the campaign.
