General elections were held in Italy on 6 November 1904, with a second round of voting on 13 November.[1] The "ministerial" left-wing bloc remained the largest in Parliament, winning 339 of the 508 seats.[2] The papal ban on Catholics voting was relaxed for the first time, and three Catholics were elected.[3]
