The South Carolina Constitution is the fundamental governing document of the state of South Carolina.
The South Carolina Constitution consists of a preamble followed by 17 articles.
The current (and sixth) South Carolina Constitution was adopted in 1896.
The 1896 constitution was amended hundreds of times prior to 2006. It has been amended 15 times since 2006.
The most recent amendments to the South Carolina Constitution, Amendment 1 and Amendment 2, were approved by voters in 2014.
South Carolina does not feature a process for initiated constitutional amendments. Thus, amendments in South Carolina can be put on the ballot through referral by the legislature or by a constitutional convention.
