Abstract

The goal of this article is to examine the Argentine Socialist Party’s electoral interventions in the city of Buenos Aires, in the period before the electoral reform promoted by President Roque Sáenz Peña in the early 1910s. It draws upon a study of the party’s journal and the commercial press. Even though it is rooted in the field of labor history, the article also discusses the bibliography that examined the main characteristics of the political regime and the political struggles in Buenos Aires during the period. The results of this research suggest that it is important to go beyond the statement of the prominent place that the Socialist Party gave to electoral participation, in order to address the specific ways in which this participation was put forward. The conclusions of the paper indicate the capacity showed by the Socialist Party to improve its performance in the elections in the second half of the decade
