Last year I was the Unit Elections Chairman for my OA Chapter. I
saw alot of what you were talking about. And some of the Scouts that
the Scoutmasters thought would be elected were not... due to the fact
that there were a large number of younger scouts without adequate
knowledge of what they were actually voting for, and the boy's
qualifications in being eligible.
One way to get around this problem is to hold your election
earlier in the year. I believe elections were held from November thru
April. By holding the election before your new scouts come over,
you've totally eliminated your problem of new scouts not knowing.
Just a suggestion. Good luck.
