Plaque with racist ties at Kenan Stadium covered by UNC logo

In October 2018, then-Chancellor Carol Folt announced that the University would rededicate Kenan Stadium to William Rand Kenan Jr. so as not to honor his father, who was the commander of a white supremacist unit. More than a year later, the University has covered a plaque with temporary signage.

Orange County Election officials, Ed Tostanoski, Dirk Kelder, and Joe Jackson wait to help early voters cast their vote at Chapel of the Cross church at 304 Franklin St. on Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2019.

Here's why some students are concerned about voter suppression at UNC

The New York Times recently ran an article about efforts to suppress the student vote at universities nationwide. As election day draws near, some students are concerned that this trend extends to UNC, as well.  Specifically, a concern students have at UNC is the possibility that One Cards may not be valid forms of identification by the Nov. 15 deadline. The University said it is working closely with the UNC System and State Board of Elections to meet the deadline. While some students think UNC does enough to make voting easy for students, others worry that missing the One Card deadline could negatively impact turnout.
