Having been a Lodge Unit Elections Advisor for one year I know the
mechanics of the election process.
The best thing to inform the new boys about the OA is the unit elections
team that conducts the election. If they are not motivated or excited
neither will your boys. That results in the popularity contest. The UE
team needs to make sure that everyone understands the purpose of the
order. I suggest that you talk to those folks and light the proverbial
council fire under their butts.
