The 1824 general election organized the third legislature of the Second Restoration. The election was held on 25 February and 6 March.

Only citizens paying taxes were eligible to vote. The election was an overwhelming victory for Villèle and the ultras, as only 17 MPs of the opposition were re-elected (including Royer-Collard, Cécile Stanilas de Girardin, Benjamin Constant and Maximilien Sébastien Foy).
