Elected Mayor



The 2011 Baltimore mayoral election was held on November 8, 2011. Because Baltimore's electorate is overwhelmingly Democratic, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's victory in the Democratic primary on September 13, 2011 all but assured her of victory in the general election.

Background and candidates

Sheila Dixon, the winner of the previous mayoral election, was forced from office following a 2010 conviction.[1] Therefore, city council president Stephanie Rawlings-Blake became mayor for the final year of what had been Dixon's term, and subsequently ran for election to a full term. Other candidates for the Democratic nomination included state senator Catherine E. Pugh; Otis Rolley, a former administrator in city government, Frank M. Conaway, Sr., the only person, other than Rawlings-Blake, in the race to have won a city-wide election, and former councilman Jody Landers

These are the results for the 2011 Democratic primary, as reported on the City of Baltimore's official website.[2]
