A referendum on the electoral system was held in Andorra on 28 May 1982.[1][2]

Background[edit]

Voters were offered the options of a majority system, a proportional system (in which the parishes would serve as constituencies), or a mixed system, with candidates elected using the majority system at the national level and the proportional system in the parishes.[1]
