The Student Government Association’s undergraduate student body presidential race is not over.

Candidates Grant Hale and Sam DeLeon, both North Texas 40 and fraternity members, will compete in a run-off election, which means students will need to vote again, because no candidate received 50 percent of the student body’s vote. SGA said about 11 percent of undergraduate students voted.

Hale, the SGA chief of staff, led with 1,368 votes, about 46 percent. DeLeon, an SGA Senator and vice president of the UNT Compliments Twitter account, scored 24.6 percent with 732 votes.

“I’m very humbled and honored to place where I did,” Hale said. “Barrett and I both are very thankful for everyone who supported us these past weeks and voted for us in this first round.”

DeLeon and his running mate, Owen Saenz, are ready to meet more students.

“My vice president and I are very excited we are moving on to the run-off election and we look forward to engaging the students more,” DeLeon said.

Run-off campaigning begins Monday, and the online voting booth opens Monday, April 18, on SGA’s web page.

Candidate Mikayla Barnes took 430 votes, about 14.4 percent. Candidate John Andrews won 286 ballots. Alessandra De La Rosa won 157 ballots, 5.3 percent of the votes.
