The UNC Board of Elections voted on a new, provisional timeline for student body presidential elections.
The new election date is March 2. Students can vote between 12 a.m. and 8 p.m. The runoff election date is March 9 if no candidate receives the required 50 percent to win.
The BOE will release a list of candidates who collected the required 1,250 signatures at 5 p.m. on Feb. 23.
Candidates who did not have enough signatures will then have a 24-hour grace period to collect more. That grace period will end on Feb. 24 at 5 p.m.
After six new members to the BOE were approved at Wednesday night’s special session of Student Congress, the BOE was able to officially meet to decide on the new timeline.
