An independence referendum was held in Turkmenistan on 26 October 1991. Voters were asked two questions:

  1. Do you agree with the legislative establishment of Turkmenistan as an independent democratic state?
  2. Do you support the statement of the President and Supreme Soviet of the Turkmenistan Soviet Socialist Republic "On the domestic and foreign policy of Turkmenistan" and the practical activity to implement it?

Both were approved by over 93% of voters.[1] Voter turnout was 97.4%.
