The election had originally been scheduled to take place on 17 March; however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government decided to open some polling stations two days in advance to ensure safe voting for elderly and immunocompromised citizens.[1][2] Citizens aged 70 years or older were also given the opportunity to vote by post.[1]

The election was held two days before the 2021 Curaçao general election.
