UBE Statement

In light of recent comments made pertaining to certain candidates on social media, UBE has issued the following statement:


We, the University Board of Elections, unequivocally condemn the recent racist and anti-black comments made on YikYak toward candidates. This language is unacceptable in elections and harms many students' efforts to promote open and productive political discourse on Grounds.


We will investigate these incidents and will work to ensure that our elections at UVA are safe and fair for everyone. We call on all candidates to ensure that they and everyone campaigning on their behalf treat all candidates with respect. To foster a culture of civic engagement and responsibility, we all must uphold the principles of respectful discourse and civility in our University community.
