A common general assembly decision was adopted on July 7, 1914, which proposed a change to the constitution to form a new county from parts of the Gwinnett, Jackson and Walton County. This new county was to be renamed after David C. Barrow, then Registrar of the University of Georgia.
The Georgian electorate voted to amend the Constitution on 3 November 1914, making Barrow Georgia 149. The new county was according to reports established because Winder's municipal borders were in Walton County but stretched into the Gwinnett and Jackson districts, which means that Winder's inhabitants were split between three different wards. Native people asked the General Assembly to found a new county with Winder as a district town in the centre.
How come Barrow County was established by a change to the constitution instead of an act of the General Assembly? The Georgian electorate in 1904 had passed a constitution amending the number of provinces in the state to 145. In the following year, the General Assembly established eight new counties and brought the overall number to 145 -- the institutional restraint.
Nevertheless, there was continued tension to increase the number of districts. As of 1906, legislators got around the 145 county restriction by causing new counties due to constitutional changes that were not subject it. Until 1924 Georgia had 161 provinces - 16 of which were established by means of the constitution change. The Milton and Campbell counts fused with Fulton on 1 January 1932, and left 159 states.
The Georgian electorate in 1945 passed a new constitutional - one that provided for an absolutely limited number of 159 provinces, with an extra stipulation that no new land could be established except by consolidating the current one.
