US Election Day 2021 | Nearly a year after Joe Biden and Kamala Harris emerged victorious over then US President Donald Trump and vice president Mike Pence, voters across the United States cast their ballots again on November 2, as polling was held across the country for elections to various government offices.

While the polling day itself is known popularly as ‘Election Day,' the elections are called ‘off-year elections.' These are neither presidential nor mid-term polls, and almost always take place in odd-numbered years.
