The aim of this paper is to study the Mexican elections of July 4th, 1926, which enabled Plutarco Elías Calles to seek a second presidential term on a fully constitutional basis. Those elections had their own significance, but also provided the framework for the second half of Calles' administration. I focus only on the elections in Mexico City.
