The Tennessee Constitution is the fundamental governing document of the state of Tennessee.
The Tennessee Constitution establishes the government of the state. It sets the structure, responsibilities, character, rules, and process of amendment. It consists of a preamble, 11 articles and a schedule.
The current (and third) Tennessee Constitution was adopted in 1870.
The current constitution has been amended seven times since 2006.
The most recent amendments to the Tennessee Constitution, of which there were four, were approved by voters in 2014.
Tennessee does not feature a process for initiated constitutional amendments. Thus, amendments in Tennessee can be put on the ballot through referral by the legislature or by a constitutional convention.
