The UNC spring 2022 general election will be held Tuesday with races for student body president, senior class officers, Residence Hall Association president, Carolina Athletic Association president and positions in the Undergraduate Senate on the ballot.
Here's what you need to know ahead of Election Day:
How can I vote?
Polls will be open Tuesday from midnight to midnight for student body president, RHA president and CAA president. For senior class officers and Undergraduate Senate races, polls will close at 8 p.m.
Students who did not make the ballot can still run as write-in candidates, but must complete the Board of Election's training mechanism and other requirements.
To vote, the BOE said students can log on to Heel Life with their Onyen and click on the banner in the top of the page. The election link will be live beginning at 12 a.m. on Tuesday.
What positions are up for election?
The UNC Student Government advocates for students in University issues and works alongside administration to build community and plan campus initiatives, according to the BOE.
The student body president is an executive officer of student government and an ex-officio member of the UNC Board of Trustees — representing the entire student body of undergraduate, graduate and professional students. Candidates who received at least 1,000 petition signatures are certified to run on the ballot.
