1. Eligibility

The candidate must have been a registered Republican for the entirety of the previous 6 years to be eligible for the Republican nomination.

2. Primaries/Caucuses

All elections in the Republican presidential primary will be closed, with only registered Republicans being eligible to vote. All elections will be primaries. There will be no early voting - voting can be done via absentee ballot or in person at the polls.

3. Delegates

There will be 2,500 delegates. Delegates will be given to each state in proportion to the number of registered Republicans, by the number of congressional districts, and by the number of elected Republicans at the state and national level. Delegates will be awarded to candidates in two ways:
*In proportion to their share of the popular vote.
and
*To the winner of each congressional district.

4. Voting areas

56 areas will be eligible to vote - the 50 states, DC, and the five territories (Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands). These 56 areas will be randomly assigned to one of 7 different election dates, with eight areas voting on each date. The seven election dates will be staggered to occur every other week, with a debate taking place on the off-week.

5. Convention rules

In order to win the nomination, you must win 1,251 delegates. Only candidates who have won at least five areas will eligible at the convention. If a candidate is not eligible, any delegates he was awarded shall be unbound and may vote for the candidate of their choice.

I'm sure glad I don't have to be controlled by stupid groups of people who fear popular leaders. I can imagine what George Washington would say about the stupid U.S. citizens of this era.
