Which is correct?

1) Has their board voted yet? 2) Have their board voted yet?

Or does it depend whether we are using American English (Has their board . . .) or British English (Have their board . . .)?



It can be either. If the writer intends to consider the board members individually, have is correct. If instead the writer considers the board members one unified group, has is correct.

  • So I guess since in the context of voting, the board will be voting individually, "have" is the better choice. You agree? Thanks.
