The United States Assembly elections of 2011 were characterized by a dramatic surge of support for the Conservative Coalition of the Democratic, Republican and Libertarian parties. The Progressive-Moderate administration fell out of favor with voters of the passage of a healthcare reform law, which nearly caused the Moderates to leave the coalition before the election. The new Tea Party movement significantly influenced the tone of most of the opposition candidates, and his Libertarian party made its first significant gains in the Assembly, though still remaining the fifth party.

Manner of Election

Most deputies are elected from single member constituencies, though many varying methods exist.

Multi Member constituencies exist in, Illinois, California, Nebraska, Maine, and Louisiana. Several states use a two-round election system, but most use simple single member districts in which the candidate receiving the most votes, even if less than a majority, is elected.
