Main article: Mississippi state executive official elections, 2011

The Mississippi lieutenant gubernatorial election of 2011 was held on Tuesday, November 8, 2011, following a primary on August 2, 2011. Mississippi is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Voters do not have to register with a party, but they must intend to support the party nominations if they vote in the primary election.[1]

The race for the lieutenant governor's seat was open in 2011, as incumbent Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant, a Republican, ran for governor. No Democrats officially entered the race, and GOP Mississippi Treasurer Tate Reeves defeated Reform Party candidate Tracella Lou O'Hara Hill in the general election.
