The Austenasian Constitutional Referendum of 2018 was a referendum which was held in the Empire of Austenasia on 6 January 2018, in which the population was encouraged to vote on amendments which had been proposed by Emperor Jonathan I to the Austenasian Constitution of 2011. Early votes were permitted to be cast from 1 January, although the referendum officially took place - and concluded - on the 6th.

Twelve amendments were proposed, grouped into four parts which could be voted on separately. The first part of the proposed group of amendments establishes a Senate as a body responsible for the accountability of the Monarch which may in extreme circumstances vote to depose them; the second part reflects the Roman and Christian culture of the Empire by explicitly claiming that Austenasia is a continuation of the Roman Empire and by making it a requirement for the Monarch to be a baptised Christian; the third part defines marriage as between one man and one woman; and the fourth part has the Deputy Prime Minister appointed by a newly elected Prime Minister rather than being the runner-up in the election.

All four parts of the proposed amendments passed, each receiving over 50% of votes in support. Thirty seven Austenasian subjects voted on all four parts, with a total turnout of 68.52%.
