Day of Unanimity

I saw in the book that the Day of Unanimity is somewhat of a voting day for the citizens of the OneState. What I could not find was exact events that happen on that day. What exactly do the people of the OneState do on that day? Thank-you for your time, consideration and help on my question :)

During the Day of Unanimity, which features elections, D-503 describes the power of being watched, which supports the theme of surveillance; he writes, "I see how everybody votes for the Benefactor and everybody sees how I vote for the Benefactor" (133). Voting otherwise would be impossible, as citizens are not afforded privacy or anonymity. By constructing a transparent city and encouraging citizens to report rebellious behavior, OneState has successfully engaged individuals in their own surveillance and oppression.
