Paul Kushner, chairperson of the UNC Board of Elections, said there will only be two options on the ballot — Maurice Grier and Elizabeth Adkins.
Kushner said there is no current reason why the election should not happen on Friday.
“We don’t have any outstanding reason to make this not happen on Friday,” he said. “There’s nothing that’s been presented to the board that would give us any reason to delay it.”
Kushner said Adkins received 44.3 percent of the vote in the last election and Grier received 22.7 percent of the vote.
With no outstanding complaints or UNC Student Supreme Court injunctions, the two candidates are proceeding with their campaign plans.
“We’re very excited to have this extra week to campaign for the runoff election,” Adkins said.
“We’re really looking at it as an opportunity to just be able to engage with more and more students and be able to interact with them and explain to them our policies...”
Grier said he wanted to use this week to continue to spread his campaign message.
