Harry Leeser

Harry is a rising junior at Swarthmore College where he is studying for a degree in Political Science. He has been interested in electoral reform for a few years and decided that he wanted to finally get involved by working at FairVote. When he isn’t debating with his friends about how to improve democracy in the United States, he enjoys following automotive racing of all types and planning out his dream car, which he hopes to build someday. Once he finishes at Swarthmore, Harry plans on doing some sort of post-graduate program, but don’t ask him what yet because he can’t make his mind due to the abundance of choices.

Each of these conventions has its own rules, including the rules governing how the nominees to be selected at the convention will be chosen, and how the various party officials will be elected.
