This Day in Georgia History

November 02, 1982

Current Constitution Ratified

With a 73 percent approval rate, voters in the 1982 general election ratified Georgia’s current constitution (officially designated the Georgia Constitution of 1983 because its effective date was July 1, 1983). This document was the result of five years work by the Select Committee on Constitutional Revision and the General Assembly to produce a substantive revision of the 1976 constitution.
