Tucson mayoral election, 2011

|Elections in Arizona|
The Tucson, Arizona mayoral election of 2011 occurred on November 8, 2011 to select the next Mayor of Tucson, and occurred simultaneously with the elections to the Tucson City Council wards 1, 2 and 4. Although not term-limited, incumbent Mayor Bob Walkup did not run for re-election, leaving Tucson's chief executive office open and competitive, with seven candidates filing to run in the race.
Current Republican Mayor Bob Walkup did not run for re-election to a third term. Traditionally, Tucson is a Democratic stronghold with its position as a university town and its large Hispanic American population (41.6% of the city's population according to the 2010 Census). Thus, a change of party control of the mayoralty is a real possibility.
For the first time in Tucson, all of the elections this year (mayor and city council) will be conducted via mail, due to a decision by the city council in April.
