In that year's general election, Georgia voters ratified the proposed amendment on Nov. 3, 1914, which marks the official date of the Candler County's creation (although a state historical marker on the courthouse grounds incorrectly cites the county's creation as the day the legislative act proposing the constitutional amendment was approved).
