Frequently Asked Questions

Can a troop/team conduct its own election?
The Guide for Officers and Advisers says:

Induction: Election to Ordeal
2. The lodge, through the unit elections committee, should work with the troop/team leader in establishing the actual time and place to conduct the election. The Order should be represented by a two‐ or three‐member team from the lodge or chapter unit elections committee. All election teams must be trained and in proper uniform during the election.

The lodge is responsible for making sure that election teams are properly trained, so it’s important that troops and teams not conduct their own elections.

Your unit OA Representative should schedule the election with the local OA chapter well in advance of the desired date.
