The election was won by the People's Party (PP), which increased its majority despite a drop in its vote share. The Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) continued its long term decline in the area and, in line with what happened in other regions, obtained one of its worst electoral results since the autonomous community's inception. On the other hand, the electoral alliance between United Left of the Valencian Country (EUPV) and the Valencian Nationalist Bloc (BNV) which stood in the 2007 election had dissolved, with both parties entering the legislature much at the expense of the declining PSOE.
As a result of the election, Francisco Camps was elected President for a third term in office. However, he resigned just two months into his term in July 2011, being succeeded by Alberto Fabra, who would remain in the post for the remainder of the legislature.
The number of seats in the Valencian Courts was set to a fixed-number of 99. All Courts' members were elected in 3 multi-member districts, corresponding to the Valencian Community's three provinces, using the D'Hondt method and a closed-listproportional representation system. Each district was entitled to an initial minimum of 20 seats, with the remaining 39 seats allocated among the three provinces in proportion to their populations, on the required condition that the number of inhabitants per seat in each district did not exceed 3 times those of any other. For the 2011 election, seats were distributed as follows: Alicante (35), Castellon (24) and Valencia (40).
Voting was on the basis of universal suffrage in a secret ballot. Only lists polling above 5% of valid votes (which include blank ballots—for none of the above) in all of the community were entitled to enter the seat distribution. This meant that in the case a list polled above 5% in one or more of the districts but below 5% in the community totals, it would remain outside of the seat apportionment.
Poll results are listed in the table below in reverse chronological order, showing the most recent first. The highest percentage figure in each polling survey is displayed in bold, and the background shaded in the leading party's colour. In the instance that there is a tie, then no figure is shaded. The lead column on the right shows the percentage-point difference between the two parties with the highest figures. Poll results use the date the survey's fieldwork was done, as opposed to the date of publication. However, if such date is unknown, the date of publication will be given instead.
Opinion polls showing seat projections are displayed in the table below. The highest seat figures in each polling survey have their background shaded in the leading party's colour. In the instance that there is a tie, then no figure is shaded. 50 seats are required for an absolute majority in the Valencian Courts.
^ abcdefghijklThis survey shows its poll results projected over candidacy votes (that is, votes going for political parties, excluding blank ballots). The vote percentage in the official election is calculated including blank ballots into the estimation. In order to obtain data comparable to both the official results as well as those of other surveys, a rule of three has been applied to the survey projections, with the results of the calculation being shown instead.
