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.

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.
Campus Safety Commission meetings have been in session over the last two months to give students, faculty and staff the opportunity to discuss their concerns with being safe on campus.

UNC graduate student and activist Maya Little was arrested on Monday and charged with misdemeanor larceny. The arrest occurred during a counterprotest, which opposed the Genocide Awareness Project exhibit. The exhibit, which compares abortions to genocides and other human rights violations, is scheduled to be on campus from Monday to Wednesday. The University sent an email on Friday to warn students about the exhibit and offer psychological services they could reach out to if disturbed by the exhibit. Because UNC is a public university, protesters are permitted to exercise free speech on campus grounds. However, some students felt UNC could have done more to prevent the unsettling images they saw on Monday.
