Indiana Constitution

The original Indiana constitution was adopted without being submitted to the people.  The current constitution is the Constitution of 1851, with numerous amendments.  The Constitution consists of a preamble and 16 articles.

Article 16 provides legislatively-referred constitutional amendment process as follows:

  • Either chamber of the Indiana General Assembly can propose an amendment
  • A simple majority of the members elected to each of the two chambers is required.
  • The same amendment can be proposed in the next session of the legislature, if there is simple majority.
  • The amendment will be submitted to a statewide vote of the people at a general election.
  • The proposed amendment becomes part of the Indiana Constitution, if a majority of the voters approve it.
