This Day in Georgia History

August 07, 1945

Voters Approved Constitution of 1945

Georgia voters ratified a new state constitution for Georgia. A special constitutional commission had met during 1943 and 1944 and drafted a new constitution. Their proposal went to the 1945 General Assembly, which made some changes in the commission’s version and then authorized a statewide vote on ratification. Voters approved the new Constitution of 1945.
