Virginia’s Constitutions

Wednesday, January 25, 2023

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the current state constitution, the Library of Virginia is pleased to offer Virginia’s Constitutions, a traveling exhibition.

State constitutions are one of the most essential parts of the social contract. They articulate a way of life and embody fundamentally important ideas about the relationships between people and their government. State constitutions provide additional protections and rights not named in the federal constitution, and can be amended more often than the federal one. Thomas Jefferson believed that state constitutions should be revised at regular intervals.
