A referendum on grain supply was held in Switzerland on 5 December 1926.[1] Voters were asked whether they approved of adding article 23 bis to the constitution, which concerned grain supply.[1] The proposal was rejected by a majority of voters and cantons.[1]


The referendum was a mandatory referendum,[1] which required a double majority; a majority of the popular vote and majority of the cantons.[2] The decision of each canton was based on the vote in that canton.[2] Full cantons counted as one vote, whilst half cantons counted as half.[2]
