Presidential elections were held in Liberia in May 1869. The result was a victory for Edward James Roye of the True Whig Party, defeating incumbent President James Spriggs Payne.[1] The election was very close, with the House of Representatives required to decide the final outcome.[2]

Roye took office on 3 January 1870.
