Mike, while I like the idea of doing the election outside of the troop
meeting is there a problem with some scouts not being in attendance at the
Having been in many different councils, I have certainly seen a wide variety
of elections and problems. Some of these could be solved by meeting with
the SM and SPL ahead of time to discuss needs, procedures, etc. In most of
the elections I have observed, the team arrives and the troop leadership
doesn't have the information on who is eligible, etc. That leads to delays
and frustrations. It also contributes to challenges to fairness and
comments about popularity contests.
Like lots of other things, communication is a problem.
