On November 19, 2011, Williams won election to District 61 of the Louisiana House of Representatives. He faced fellow Democrats Donna Collins-Lewis and C. Denise Marcelle 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.[1] Williams defeated Marcelle to win the seat.[2]
