A modernidade envolve o campo político: representações e práticas do processo eleitoral na Porto Alegre da década de 1920

The article approaches the political conjuncture in the city of Porto Alegre (Rio Grande do Sul) in the 1920's. It was characterized by: the plea to the political control by the PRR; the process of modernization of the social relations present in the Brazilian society; and the insufficience of the oligarchical structures of domination. The administrative continuity of the PRR during the exchange of mayor operated in the years of 1924 and 1928 cannot be taken as a continuity of previous administrative politics. It is necessary to perceive the elements of continuity and of rupture to understand this long period of control in the city of Porto Alegre.
