A constitutional referendum was held in France on 13 October 1946.[1] Voters were asked whether they approved of a new constitution proposed by the Constituent Assembly elected in June.[2] Unlike the May referendum, which saw a previous constitutional proposal rejected, the new constitution was accepted by 53.2% of voters, and brought the French Fourth Republic into existence. Voter turnout was 67.6%.[2]
