2021 State Legislature Special Elections

Need more information on the various 2021 state legislature special elections? This is the right place, we assure you.

In 2020, Democrats made modest gains in special elections at the state level, leading up to their federal trifecta win. This followed 2019, a year in which Republicans were the ones making small gains in these legislative races. Two states, New Jersey and Virginia, will elect governors and state legislatures this year, so local races there may provide some insight.

This is the place to track all of the special elections throughout the United States. Electionarium is going to do something a little different this year: we are going to preview every single one of them. Clicking on the articles below will open a new tab and get you to the special elections of your choice.
