On November 19, 2011, Norton won re-election to District 3 of the Louisiana House of Representatives. She faced Anna Marie Arpino (R), Ernest Baylor Jr. (D) and Lynn Cawthorne (D) in the October 22 primary. Because Louisiana uses a blanket primary system, a candidate can be declared the overall winner of the seat by garnering 50 percent +1 of the vote in the primary. However, since no candidate reached this threshold, a general election took place on November 19, 2011 between top-two vote getters Norton and Cawthorne.[1] Norton defeated Cawthorne to win re-election.[2]
