Marcelle ran in the 2011 election for Louisiana House of Representatives District 61. She faced fellow Democrats Donna Collins-Lewis and Alfred Williams in the primary election on October 22, 2011. 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 Williams and Marcelle. Williams defeated Marcelle to win the seat.
