General elections were held in Belgium on 11 August 1864,[1][2] the first full general elections since 1857.[3] Although the Catholics received the most votes for seats in the Chamber of Representatives, the result was a victory for the Liberal Party, which won 64 of the 116 seats.[2] Voter turnout was 76.7%,[3] although only 103,717 people (2.1% of the population) were eligible to vote.[2]
