Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Oregon constitution was voted on in 1857, in anticipation of statehood. Additional clauses were put to the popular vote on the prohibition of slavery, and the immigration of "Free Negroes" to the newly formed state. Statewide, the constitution, ban on slavery, and exclusion of African-Americans all passed. The ban on African-American immigrants remained in place until 1927.
