A presidential election was held in Guatemala on January, 17 1916. The president was reelected in 1916 without opposition.[1]

Although all power is centered in the hands of one man, the forms of the constitution are still observed and elections are held regularly in accordance with the law. They are, moreover, participated in, not by a few chosen voters...but by the entire body of citizens. In a presidential election...all classes of the population are rounded up by the military and taken to the polls, where they exercise a right of suffrage restricted only by the fact that they are not permitted to vote for any but the official candidates. The number of votes for the re-election of the president thus equals, when it does not exceed, the total number of adult males in the republic”.[2]

Estrada Cabera assumes the presidency on 15 March 1911.
