Arkansas 1980 ballot measures
- One measure of the four that required yes-or-no approval was approved.
- The results of the one measure that listed options instead of an approve-or-disapprove choice, the Alternate Proposal to the Proposed Constitution of 1980, ensured that state Supreme Court justices are selected through a nonpartisan election.
- One of the measures was a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, the second was an initiated constitutional amendment, the third was an initiated state statute and the remaining two were referred by a constitutional convention.
