Arizona elections, 2006

The Arizona state elections of 2006 were held on November 7, 2006. All election results are from the Arizona Secretary of State's office. Percentages may not add to 100 because of rounding.

The deadline for signing petition signatures to appear on the September 12, 2006 primary ballot for all races was June 14, 2006.

This article does not yet include complete information about the state propositions placed on the ballot, but major propositions for Arizona in 2006 included:

  • An attempt to add language to the AZ Constitution that would declare a marriage as only between a man and a woman (did not pass; as of 2006, AZ is the only state to reject a same-sex marriage ban proposed to its voters, though an amendment to the state constitution passed in 2008)
  • Two competing statewide illegal immigrants, including ones that would make English the official language of Arizona, and restrict some currently held rights of illegal immigrants.
