Having read quickly through these rules, I don't see clearly how a "write-in candidate" is different from a "nominated candidate".
Both must formally register their candidacy by the due date, all the information is public before the election, both must keep
proper registered accounts of their election expenses.  There is nothing informal about this process.

Maybe the rules on "write-ins" are quite different in other States?
