One of the three ASWSU primary debate teams dropped out of the debate, canceling the event that was scheduled for Tuesday. 

Election Board Chair Sarah Gorrell said presidential and vice-presidential candidates Ayden Garland-Miner and Sam King-Shaw dropped out of the debate. 

According to one of the ASWSU bylaws, a primary debate must have three parties present in order to be conducted, Gorell said. 

She said the multicultural debate scheduled for March 5 is still on. The presidential and vice-presidential candidates will participate in that debate as well as the general election debate scheduled for March 8. 

General election voting will open March 10-11.

The other candidate teams consist of Kylie Waddill and Donavyn Velez-Fucal running against Curtis Cohen and Sean Doster.
