New student body presidential election is set for March 10

UPDATE (10:10 p.m. Wednesday): Elections for student body president will be held on March 10, said Paul Kushner, chairperson of the UNC Board of Elections.

Voting will be from 12 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Maurice Grier and Elizabeth Adkins are the candidates who will appear on the ballot, but there will also be a write-in option.

Kushner said the board agreed on the new timeline Wednesday evening.

The injunction on student body presidential elections has been lifted and the UNC Board of Elections can now decide a new timeline.

Paul Kushner, chairperson of the BOE, said a motion to dismiss the complaint by Travis Broadhurst was filed by the plaintiffs to the UNC Student Supreme Court and it was granted.

The injunction was placed after Broadhurst filed the complaint against the BOE alleging the BOE did not properly verify signatures collected by candidates.
