Overseer and HAA Director Candidates
This spring, alumni can vote—using either a new online balloting site or the traditional paper, mail-in, ballot—for new Harvard Overseers and Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) elected directors. Email notifications about the new electronic-voting option and website link were sent April 3, when the paper ballots were also mailed. Votes must be received by 5 p.m. EDT on May 21 to be counted. All holders of Harvard degrees, except Corporation members and officers of instruction and government, are entitled to vote for Overseer candidates. The election for HAA directors is open to all Harvard degree-holders.
