CAST YOUR VOTE

 

Harvard Forward is a movement to elect five recent alumni to the Board of Overseers on a platform of climate action, inclusive governance, and responsible investing. 

We need all eligible alumni to vote for the Harvard Forward Five before August 18th.

Last year, less than 15% of alumni voted. It takes two minutes to vote online!

Ballots must be received by Harvard by August 18th, 2020 at 5:00 pm EDT. 

If you have issues voting or questions about the voting process, view Harvard's election FAQ.
