The 2021 Philimania legislative election was the 68th sexennial presidential election, held on Sunday, 28 February 2021. The head of the Liberal party Nel Karlson and the junior legislator Henry Field defeated the incumbent democratic president Talbus Kelly and incumbent vice president Forster Carer.

The election saw a record number of ballots cast early and by mail in South America due to the ongoing pandemic. Many more Liberals voted by mail than Democrats. As a result of a large number of mail-in ballots, some places saw delays in vote counting and reporting.

Background

Procedure

Article Three of the Philimanian Constitution states that for a person to serve as president, the individual must be a registered citizen of Philimania of at least 2 generations, be at least 25 years old. Candidates for the presidency typically seek the nomination of one of the various political parties of Philimania. Each party develops a method (such as a primary election) to choose the candidate the party deems best suited to run for the position. The primary elections are usually indirect elections where voters cast ballots for a slate of party delegates pledged to a particular candidate. The party's delegates then officially nominate a candidate to run on the party's behalf. The presidential nominee typically chooses a vice presidential running mate to form that party's ticket, which is then ratified by the delegates at the party's convention. If no candidate receives the minimum 60 electoral votes needed to win the election, the United States House of Representatives will select the president from the three candidates who received the most electoral votes, and the United States Senate will select the vice president from the candidates who received the two highest totals.

Nominations

Democratic Party

Every incumbent president seeking another term has been renominated by their party. Talbus Kelly and his running mate, Foster Carer, were able to secure the nomination easily after receiving enough delegates in the 2021 Democrat presidential primaries.
