WAPP State Organization
In order to effectively deal with shear amount of legislation, candidates, and activities going on in the state at any point in time, we have arranged ourselves to follow geopolitical lines and group affiliations.
|Congressional Districts||Legislative Districts||County Divisions|
The national division deals with Presidential, Vice-presidential, Cabinet, and Supreme Court candidates and Congressional legislation. The Pirate National Committee (PNC) helps coordinate communications and actions between the states, but the state parties mainly deal directly with each other. They hold a national convention every four years to facilitate the choosing of Presidential and Vice-presidential candidates.
State level legislation and candidates like US Senators or the President affect all people in the state and this division of the party keeps track and when the time comes sends this information down to the Congressional, Legislative, and County divisions.
The Congressional, Legislative, and County divisions are created by state law and every resident in Washington is located in one division of each. Congressional Districts, Legislative Districts, and County Divisions all keep track of the legislation, candidates, and ballot initiatives going on in their respective regions. They also keep track of which Precincts are in their areas and when elections come around they pass along all their information to the groups managing each Precinct. The Precincts then go out and canvass with a list of all ballot initiatives, legislation, and candidates for their area.
