The Montana Constitutional Convention Question, also known as CC-1, was on the November 6, 1990 ballot in Montana as an automatic ballot referral, where it was defeated. The measure would have called for a constitutional convention if approved by voters.[1][2]

In 1970, residents voted nearly 2-1 in favor of rewriting Montana's original 1889 constitution. The vote resulted in a convention that included 100 elected delegates and 56 staffers. The 1990 call was the first automatic call for a constitution convention since it was written. The next call was in 2010, which was also defeated.[3]
