Free drops of uncharged and charged inviscid, conducting fluids subjected to small-amplitude perturbations undergo linear oscillations (Rayleigh, Proc. R. Soc. London, vol. 29, no. 196–199, 1879, pp. 71–97; Rayleigh, Philos. Mag., vol. 14, no. 87, 1882, pp. 184–186). There exist a countably infinite number of oscillation modes, $n=2, 3, \ldots$, each of which has a characteristic frequency and mode shape. Presence of charge ($Q$) lowers modal frequencies and leads to instability when $Q>Q_R$ (Rayleigh limit). The $n=0$ and $n=1$ modes are disallowed because they violate volume conservation and cause centre of mass (COM) motion. Thus, the first mode to become unstable is the $n=2$ prolate–oblate mode. For free drops, there is a one-to-one correspondence between mode number and shape (Legendre polynomial $P_n$). Recent research has shifted to studying oscillations of spherical drops constrained by solid rings. Pinning the drop introduces a new low-frequency mode of oscillation ($n=1$), one associated primarily with COM translation of the constrained drop. We analyse theoretically the effect of charge on oscillations of constrained drops. Using normal modes and solving a linear operator eigenvalue problem, we determine the frequency of each oscillation mode. Results demonstrate that for ring-constrained charged drops (RCCDs), the association between mode number and shape is lost. For certain pinning locations, oscillations exhibit eigenvalue veering as $Q$ increases. While slightly charged RCCDs pinned at zeros of $P_2$ have a first mode that involves COM motion and a second mode that entails prolate–oblate oscillations, the modes flip as $Q$ increases. Thereafter, prolate–oblate oscillations of RCCDs adopt the role of being the first mode because they exhibit the lowest vibration frequency. At the Rayleigh limit, the first eigenmode – prolate–oblate oscillations – loses stability while the second – involving COM motion – remains stable.
