The 1912 United States presidential election in Arizona took place on November 5, 1912, as part of the 1912 United States presidential election. Arizona voters chose three representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Arizona was won by Princeton University President Woodrow Wilson (DVirginia), running with governor of Indiana Thomas R. Marshall, with 43.52% of the popular vote, against the 26th president of the United States Theodore Roosevelt (PNew York), running with governor of California Hiram Johnson, with 29.29% of the popular vote, the five-time candidate of the Socialist Party of America for President of the United States Eugene V. Debs (SIndiana), running with the first Socialist mayor of a major city in the United States Emil Seidel, with 13.33% of the popular vote and the 27th president of the United States William Howard Taft (ROhio), running with Columbia University President Nicholas Murray Butler, with 12.74% of the popular vote.[1]

Arizona was one of the states where the sitting president William Howard Taft came in fourth due to his low approval ratings and the Republican vote being divided between him and Theodore Roosevelt. Over one century later, Roosevelt’s 29.29 percent remains the best-ever third-party presidential performance in Arizona.[2]
