Louisiana House of Representatives

Elections for the office of Louisiana State Representative were held on November 19, 2011. Each of the state's 105 representatives were up for election. Members are elected to four-year terms.

The 2011 election will be the state's first election under its new legislative maps. Following the 2010 census, the state redrew its legislative boundaries to account for growth and shifts in the state's population. The Louisiana State Legislature was responsible for the redistricting process. Louisiana's 105 house seats are comprised of single-member legislative districts.

Louisiana is just one of four states that held state house elections in 2011. The other three states that hold their state house elections in odd-numbered years are New Jersey, Mississippi and Virginia. Louisiana is the only state to hold its 2011 legislative elections on a Saturday.

Candidates wishing to run for the Louisiana House of Representatives were required to file their nominating signatures or candidate filing fees between September 6 and September 8. The state primary election took place on Saturday, October 22, 2011. As they become available, candidate information and election results will be reflected on this page.

Term limits

See also State legislatures with term limits and Impact of term limits on state senate elections in 2012

Of the 15 states, it is the only state where term limits were imposed by the state's legislators, rather than through the ballot initiative process. Under Louisiana's term limits, state representatives can serve no more than three 4-year terms in the house.

There are 105 Louisiana State Representatives. In 2011, 10 of them who are current members, or 9.5% of the total house seats, will be ineligible to run for the house again. Of them, 5 are Democratic state representatives and 3 are Republican.

In addition to the 10 state representatives who are leaving office because of term limits, 6 state senators are also termed-out.

The 10 current members of the state house who will be ineligible to run in November are:

Democrats (5):

Republicans (4):

Independents (1)

Why odd-year elections?

Clerk of the Louisiana House Alfred "Butch Speer explains why the state holds odd-year elections:

For scores of years we conducted our party primaries in the winter of the odd numbered years, with any necessary 2nd primary held in January. Because Republican voter registration was so miniscule from 1877 until 1980, the general elections were mere irritants to the Democrat primary victor. Once we scrapped the partisan primary system [1975] we set the entire system up to run in the fall of the odd numbered year, our traditional election season.[1]

Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in Louisiana

Every 10 years, the Constitution requires states to redraw Congressional and state legislative districts based on updated Census information. In 2011, Louisiana was the second state to complete its state legislative redistricting. Its 39 senate and 105 house districts were re-drawn by the Legislature and approved by Governor Bobby Jindal.

During the redistricting process, Louisiana legislators faced a compressed timeline compared to other states. The odd year elections meant that the 2011 elections in the fall would need districts soon enough to get clearance from the Department of Justice per the Voting Rights Act, allow candidates to file in the appropriate districts, and leave time for the Blanket primary and the general election to happen in early November 2011.

The new state House of Representatives map added two new majority-minority seats, which was one less than some lawmakers wanted. many feared that the justice department would reject the plan without another majority-minority seat, but their fears were unrealized as the Justice Department accepted Louisiana's first map for the first time since the VRA came into enforcement. Three more seats were allocated to the Baton Rouge area, and the legislators who voted against the new map came primarily from the New Orleans suburbs or were African American Democrats, many of whom were from New Orleans. The general loss of population in that area compounded with a sense that their requests were not addressed led these two groups to vote against the map.

Majority control

See also: Partisan composition of state houses

Going into the November 2011 elections, the Republican Party was the majority party in 31 state houses, including Louisiana. One chamber (Nebraska) is officially nonpartisan and in one chamber (Alaska), several Republicans vote with a caucus other than the Republican caucus. In 19 states, the Democratic Party is the majority party.

In the other 3 states with state house elections in 2011 (Mississippi, New Jersey, and Virginia), the Republican Party held the majority party in Virginia, while the Democratic Party held the majority party in Mississippi and New Jersey.

The partisan composition of the Louisiana House of Representatives before and after the election:
