General elections were held in Guam on 7 November 2006 in order to elect the Governor, all 15 seats in the Legislature and the federal delegate. There was also a double referendum on legalise slot machines at racing tracks and raising the age at which citizens could purchase and consume alcohol to 21.[1][2]

Whilst Felix Perez Camacho of the Republican Party was re-elected as Governor, the Democratic Party won a majority of seats in the Legislature. Madeleine Bordallo was re-elected as the territory's federal delegate, whilst both referendum questions were rejected.


In Guam, elections to the Legislature and multi-member boards are run via open primary (This following the outlawing of the previous blanket primary similar to Louisiana.

Both the Public Auditor and Consolidated Commission on Utilities are required to be nonpartisan and as such candidates are not allowed to state affiliations or list them on the ballot.

In the case of the Auditor, affiliating with a party is grounds for disqualification.
