Australian referendum, 1988 (Local Government)

The Australian Constitution recognises Government at Federal and State levels, but makes no mention of local government. Constitution Alteration (Local Government) 1988 proposed to alter the constitution so as to recognise local government. The proposal was put to a referendum in the Australian referendum, 1988.

A similar proposal was made in the Constitution Alteration (Local Government) 2013, but that proposal was not submitted to a referendum.

Results
