French Presidential elections under the Third Republic involved the election of the President of France by the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate. The President was thus elected by indirect universal suffrage.

Since the Third Republic was a parliamentary system, the President had much fewer powers than under the current Fifth Republic, where the president is elected under universal suffrage. Besides, since the May 16, 1877 crisis, the President was prevented, by custom, to use his right of dissolution of parliament. Thus, no president used it after Mac-Mahon dissolving of 1877.
