All 509 seats to the
State Duma of the Russian Empire
255 seats needed for a majority
Parliamentary elections were held in the Russian Empire in October 1907. They were the second that year after the dissolution of the Second State Duma. The Union of October 17 emerged as the largest party in the third State Duma, winning 154 of the 509 seats. This was the first Duma elected after the coup of June 1907, in which the government intentionally altered the franchise to restrict the voting rights of peasants and workers and decreased the number of representatives of so-called 'national remote areas' (i.e. ethnic minorities).
The Third Duma was the only one of four State Dumas in the Russian Empire that worked the full statutory five-year term.
