I cannot understand why you have not been put in. The Troop is allowed one adult for every 50 registered Scouts in the troop which basicially means one per year that they put a youth in. Your lodge should be holding the elections not the troop and I always had elections held in my troop before the cross over. I am a believer in working on a school year and that would eliminate this cross over problem but I am in the minority as most people in scout do not remember that was the way it was.

I found that presentation and discussion seemed to allow even those Scouts with little experience with the other Scouts to vote what I consider very accurately.

After the boys talks about the OA they talk about how the election works. They tell the Troop that if they wish to vote for everyone that is a canidate just to write "all " on the ballot and not write out every name even if there is only 2 names. In the 3 years that I have helped out I have only seen about 3 votes that did not say all and just had 1 or 2 names on it.
