Ask the Chairman - Unit Elections

Q. Does a Scout need to be present during the unit elections to have his name on the OA ballot, if he meets the other requirements?

A. There is no national requirement that a youth needs be present to be elected by his peers. If all the requirements are met, his name should appear on the ballot.
