Summers led the three, receiving 35.6 percent of the votes. Walker received 26.3 percent while David Marsh was kept out of the runoff with 21.2 percent of the vote.
These percentages do not include write-in votes, which constituted 17 percent of the 3,791 total voters.
This total is the lowest voter turnout in more than a decade. The lowest voter turnout in a general election since 2005 had previously been 4,507 votes in 2012.
Writer and folklorist Zora Neale Hurston, who died in 1960, got 403 write-in votes.
Activists want Hurston to replace William Saunders as the prominent campus building’s namesake. Hurston received 10.6 percent of total votes.
Other names included in the write-in votes tally were Left Shark, Dean Smith and Hillary Clinton.
Marsh said he will endorse a candidate but was not yet ready to make an announcement.
“Obviously I’m disappointed with the results, but I really have no regrets about the campaign we ran,” he said. “We ran a great campaign — a clean campaign. We won y’all’s endorsement, and there’s not one particular thing I wish we could change.”
