Friday 02 Dec 2016: Amendment ratification took 202 years
The most recent Amendment to the US Constitution (the 27th Amendment) took 202 years to be ratified. It was one of the first amendments to be proposed in 1789, along with those that make up the Bill of Rights, but it initially did not get enough support. It eventually came into force in 1992 after being largely forgotten.
