The 1926 United States elections were held on November 2, 1926, in the middle of President Calvin Coolidge's second (only full) term. The Republican Party lost nine seats to the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives but retained a majority. The Republicans also lost six seats to the Democrats in the U.S. Senate but retained their majority since Vice President Charles G. Dawes cast the tie-breaking vote.[1]
