In the first half of the nineteenth century, elections were few in Europe. When they occurred, they were often reserved for the elite, because in many European countries, there is a political system of constitutional monarchy. We still believe that those who are not forced to work under their fortunes are more likely to vote and organize elections.
All these factors make elections in Europe before 1870, an event that was clearly elitist for some people. By the 1970s, with the liberalization policy and increased freedom, elections became everyone's business (although this does not happen everywhere) and an indispensable means to move toward democratization. The development phase of elections lasted until 1914 (but it does not stop at that date).
During this period, the need to hold elections was more frequent and more massive. How the elections organized and what were the consequences of these elections on the political life of the different powers of Europe in the early twentieth century?
