#1 - I do not know what the National numbers are, but the Pack that I
have been associated with for 7 years averages over 97%. And we get about a
95% crossover rate into Boy Scouts. Of course what happens after that is up
to the boys and their Troops <sigh>, wish the dropout rate in first year was
not so high.
#2 - Short answer is yes. Call your Lodge people and they will explain
how they do elections. Usually some members of the Lodge come in and confer
with the SM to get a list of those elegible (1st Class of higher), then they
talk to the boys' about it and hold the election without any adults present.
