1919 Norwegian prohibition referendum

A referendum on introducing prohibition was held in Norway on 5 and 6 October 1919.[1] Partial prohibition had been in effect since 1917, and the prohibition proposal did not include all types of alcohol, only spirits. The proposal was approved by 61.6% of voters. A second referendum on whether the prohibition should be maintained was held in 1926, resulting in an overturning of the law.
