    Franco in Spain is the best example, but in so many cases, a disputed election is the triggering event which causes a military action, or overthrow, which then brings full blown Fascism to the country.

    Democracy was ended in the US South for 100 years because the ruling classes did not like the results of the election of 1860.

    I cannot count the number of Latin American countries where a disputed election led to a Fascist overthrow.

    Germany and Italy, however, did not become Fascist until trickery led to outlawing of all other parties.
