This spring, alumni can vote for a new group of Harvard Overseers and elected directors for the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) board.
Ballots will be mailed no later than April 1 and must be received back in Cambridge by noon on May 18 to be counted. Results of the election will be announced at the HAA’s annual meeting on May 24, on the afternoon of Commencement day. 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.
