This Day in Georgia History

March 09, 1945

New State Constitution Proposed

Gov. Ellis Arnall signed a joint resolution of the General Assembly proposing a new state constitution for Georgia. In a special election held on Aug. 7, 1945, Georgia voters approved what would be known as the Constitution of 1945 (although technically the entire new constitution was adopted as a single amendment to the Constitution of 1877).
