the Marshall Islands

A general election was held in the Marshall Islands on 21 November 2011.[1] The general election is held every four years.[1]

An estimated 36,000 Marshallese voted in the election.[1] Final results were not known until after 5 December 2011, when overseas ballots were due.[1]

Unofficial results indicate the incumbent president may have the same one-vote majority in parliament he had before the election.[2]

Health minister Amenta Matthew and former foreign minister Gerald Zackios lost reelection due to postal ballots.[3]

A tie in the race for the Ujae Atoll seat was only broken after a recount.[4]
