      Do not send in email votes as described in Adam s email. The leaders commend the senior scouts for looking into ways of streamlining the election process.

        Do not send in email votes as described in Adam's email.

        The leaders commend the senior scouts for looking into ways of streamlining the election process.  However, any change in the election procedures needs to be discussed at a PLC meeting with the leaders, and this didn't happen (the leaders were engaged in other things while the scouts discussed these new ideas on Monday).  Traditionally, we have abided by the following rules for scout elections:
        1. We announce the stumping/election day in advance, so that scouts who cannot make it to every meeting have the opportunity to make a decision about attending.
        2. Elections are held in-person only, by secret ballot. If you do not attend the meeting to hear someone's carefully thought-out speech, you do not get to cast a vote (this could allow it to turn into a popularity contest).  Exceptions can be made only my discussion with the SM.
        3. Scouts (especially scouts on the ballot) are not involved in any way with the counting of the votes — that would be a conflict of interest.
        So, with the PLC's desire to streamline the streamline the process, here are ACTION ITEMS for each of you scouts:
        1. If want to run for a position or positions, email Adam with your name and the desired position(s) you want to run for — by Sunday (Scout Sunday)
        2. If you do 1…  Then prepare a short speech (about 5 minutes more or less) about why you should be elected.  You will deliver this "stumping speech" next week.
        3. You may consider the names already tendered for the positions, but give equal consideration to any additional candidates that are added
        Adam will construct pre-printed PAPER ballots for Monday's meeting.  If you haven't emailed him your intention to run by Sunday Afternoon, then you can only run as a "write-in" candidate.  This would be done "on the fly" on Monday night.  Write-in candidates can win elections, but some might think that candidates on the printed ballot have an advantage — you be the judge.

        Sorry for any confusion.  If there are any questions, please contact me.
