Elections

2011

See also: Louisiana State Senate elections, 2011

Appel ran for re-election in 2011. He was unopposed 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, if no candidate reaches this threshold, then a general election would have taken place on November 19, 2011 between the top-two vote getters.[2]

2008

Appel was elected to the Louisiana State Senate District in a special election held November 4, 2008. He defeated Polly Thomas.[3]
