The March 2021 general election was the twentieth general election in The Leftist Assembly and voting was held from 11 to 14 March 2021. The position of Secretary and six seats in the General Assembly were available for election.

Dyl was re-elected as Secretary, and Soviet Catgirls, New Samon, New Flamington, Super Awesome Fun Times, Sauros, and Idontknowium were elected to the General Assembly.

Methodology

Voter eligibility

To be eligible to vote, a nation must be an electoral citizen, which requires that individual to reside in The Leftist Assembly with their World Assembly nation (World Assembly citizen), or to have their World Assembly nation be registered in an affiliated anti-fascist military (Military Voting citizen) or an embassy region (dual citizen).

Ballots

For the Secretary election, instant runoff voting (IRV) was used, whereby voters rank the candidates in order of their preference. The primary vote of each candidate is then tallied, and the candidate with the least votes is eliminated and their votes preferentially distributed in a repeated process until one candidate achieves a majority. If there is only one candidate, they face a confidence vote instead.

For the General Assembly election, the plurality-at-large voting system was used, whereby voters may select as many candidates as there are available seats according to their preference. The six candidates that have received the most votes are elected. If there are six or fewer candidates, they each face a confidence vote instead.

The election moderators were Llorens, Ghillemear, and Grod Island.

Endorsements

Only endorsements by nations who have previously served in an executive or legislative leadership position are recorded.
