Results of the Grenada Constitution Referendum

Results of the Grenada Constitution Referendum 2016

After the Constitutional Reform Advisory Committee (CRAC), other Civil Society Organisations and other interest groups hosted numerous educational forums regarding Grenada’s first ever Constitution Referendum, Grenadians finally got their chance to cast their votes.

However, there was quite a low voter turnout of approximately 32% — just over 21,000 of the 71,241 total registered voters actually cast their ballots.

The wide margin between the number of ‘YES’ and ‘NO’ votes was vast:
