Partial legislative elections were held in Belgium on Tuesday 9 June 1835.[1] In the Senate elections Catholics won 31 seats and Liberals eight.[1] Only 23,000 people were eligible to vote in the election.[1]

Under the alternating system, Chamber elections were only held in four out of the nine provinces: East Flanders, Hainaut, Liège and Limburg. Thus, 51 of the 102 Chamber seats were up for election.

The incumbent government was led by Barthélémy de Theux de Meylandt.
