Autonomy referendums were held in Beni Department and Pando Department in Bolivia on 1 June 2008, following the autonomy referendum held in Santa Cruz Department on 4 May 2008.[1][2] Both departments approved autonomy with slightly over 80% of the vote.[3] Turnout was only 34.5% in Beni and slightly over 50% in Pando.[4]

A similar referendum was held in Tarija Department on 22 June 2008.[3]

The National Electoral Court had blocked the referenda, along with the proposed referendum on Morales's new constitution. The referenda were also unconstitutional, as the constitution in force at the time had no provisions for departmental autonomy.[5]
