WYANDOTTE CONSTITUTION. The Wyandotte Constitution, the charter under which Kansas became a state, was drafted at Wyandotte (now Kansas City, Kansas) by the first territorial convention in which Republicans and Democrats participated (5–29 July 1859). It was adopted by popular vote on 4 October. It followed the constitution of Ohio as a model, prohibited slavery, and reduced Kansas to its present boundaries.
