The scout should know the rules because when the OA elections team holds the
election, they are supposed to explain the rules, i.e.. how many and who are
eligible, and how many they can vote for. The scouts can do the math. They
also are supposed to describe the ideal candidate, such as the scout who
always helps, always kind, etc...
