The ratio of the proton's elastic electromagnetic form factors, G Ep / G Mp, was obtained by measuring Pt and Pl, the transverse and the longitudinal recoil proton polarization, respectively. For elastic ep→ep, G Ep / G Mp is proportional to Pt / Pl. Simultaneous measurement of Pt and Pl in a polarimeter provides good control of the systematic uncertainty. The results for the ratio G Ep / G Mp show a systematic decrease as Q2 increases from 0.5 to 3.5GeV2, indicating for the first time a definite difference in the spatial distribution of charge and magnetization currents in the proton.
