8. Ohio (May 6, 1873)
9. Wyoming (March 6, 1978)
10. Maine (April 27, 1983)

28. Idaho (March 23, 1989)
29. Nevada (April 26, 1989)
30. Alaska (May 6, 1989)
31. Oregon (May 19, 1989)
32. Minnesota (May 22, 1989)
33. Texas (May 25, 1989)
34. Kansas (April 5, 1990)

39. Michigan (May 7, 1992)

41. Illinois (May 12, 1992)

The Archivist of the United States certified that the amendment's ratification was completed on May 7, 1992, with Michigan being the 38th state to ratify. It later came to light that the Kentucky General Assembly had ratified all 12 amendments during that state's initial month of statehood, technically making Alabama the 38th state to ratify the amendment and finalize its addition to the Constitution. Nonetheless, the federal government's official record still holds that Michigan was the 38th state to ratify the amendment.

States that ratified post-certification

1. California (June 26, 1992)
2. Rhode Island (June 10, 1993)
3. Hawaii (April 29, 1994)[12]
4. Washington (April 6, 1995)
* Kentucky (March 21, 1996) (re-ratification, had previously ratified on June 27, 1792)

2. Mississippi
3. Nebraska
4. New York
5. Pennsylvania
