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.
Refer to the Membership Requirements and Unit Requirements
section of the Guide for Officers and Advisers
for more information.
