Engage Miami November 2021 City of Miami Voter Guide

The City of Miami’s 2021 Municipal Election is here! 

At Engage, we know how important it is for all of us to be able to make an informed vote, and how hard it can be to find out where some of these candidates actually stand on the issues. We’ve put together our City of Miami 2021 Young People’s Voter Guide so you have everything you need to know about this year’s election.

Our guide covers candidates for The City of Miami Mayor, District 3 Commissioner, and District 5 Commissioner. We also give you some facts about Miami and what exactly our city’s Mayor and Commissioners do.

We know our guide doesn’t cover everything on every ballot, so definitely check your sample ballot so you know exactly what to expect.
