2011 Baltimore mayoral election
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 candidatesSheila Dixon, the winner of the previous mayoral election, was forced from office following a 2010 conviction. 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 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 citywide election, and former councilman Jody Landers
