“NC Elections Board to hear cases that touch on student voting rights; State elections board says Elizabeth City college student can seek local office”

News Observer:

The state Board of Elections on Tuesday unanimously agreed that an Elizabeth City State University student can run for local office, reversing a decision by the Pasquotank County elections board.

Montravias King registered to run for the Elizabeth City board on July 19 when he was a student at the historically black college in the Pasquotank County seat.

UPDATE: NC elections board gives college voters split decision: “The State Board of Elections gave a boost Tuesday to college students interested in running for political office but turned aside an argument that forcing them to leave campus to vote was a hardship.”
