“It is a great dress rehearsal for 2022.”
Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon on election day 2021.

- Nationwide voting will take place in a variety of races - from the hyper-local (city council) to the national stage (governors and special elections for Congress).
- Each state runs their own election process; how you cast a vote in your area is completely up to your state's government.
- Since election security and reliability was a topic of conversation in the presidential election of 2020, this Election Day will highlight new measures put into place in some areas for election security.
- Why It Matters: Security and access go hand and hand. One voting rights activist said of Election Day 2021: "It’s a test of voters to run the gauntlet, to figure out these new rules and restrictions. And frankly, it’s also a test of our democracy: How strong can it be, and are we willing to tolerate these efforts to make it harder for people to vote.”
