This is a quick answer to your question about OA members being allowed to
vote at youth elections....
OA Handbook...1989 printing...page 102:
"To become a member of the OA a Boy scout, Varsity Scout, or Explorer is chosen
by vote of the youth in his unit. This is a unique feature of the Order since
the majority of those who select their candidates for this honor are NOT
members of the lodge. HOWEVER, LODGE MEMBERS IN THE UNIT HAVE A VOTE AS WELL
AS NON-MEMBERS. In this way membership is controlled by the youth in their
own units and not by those who are already Arrowmen. "
This is a change to what lots of lodges were doing....that is, excluding OA
members (youth and adult) from the election process....
