CORRECTION: A previous version of this article misrepresented the nature of a student government bill at N.C. State University to eliminate instant runoff voting. The bill would eliminate the voting practice only in legislative races. The Daily Tar Heel apologizes for the error.
The bill would change voting from a general election and runoff system to instant runoff voting, where voters determine the winner by ranking each of the candidates in order of preference. That would eliminate any campaigning after the original vote.
Lambden will decide by Tuesday whether or not to veto the bill, said Student Body Vice President Jacob Morse. Lambden vetoed a similar measure in August.
A member of Student Congress who favored the bill referenced a reduction in voter and candidate fatigue as a reason for the switch, saying that N.C. State University and Duke University have found the method to be more efficient.
However, N.C. State Student Senate President Kelsey Mills said their student senate will vote Wednesday on a bill to get rid of the instant runoff system for student body president elections. She said members of student government have voiced concerns about whether instant runoffs are indicative of what students really want.
