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.

Meet the ghosts students say are haunting them around UNC's campus

“It was a knock at the door. It was the shaking of my bed. It was lights. It was bruises on my arm. One time it destroyed my room. My roommate hadn’t been in town, and I walked into my room and everything was not where it was supposed to be. And I was like, I didn’t do this. My roommate’s out of town. We’re the only two people who have a key to this room.” From Hinton James Residence Hall to Gimghoul Castle, students say they've experienced a variety of hauntings across campus. One student saw a woman wearing all black who disappeared from sight, while another believes the ghost of a friendly dog plays tricks on her and her friends. Just in time for Halloween, here are some spooky ghost stories from UNC and around Chapel Hill.
