The Montana Constitutional Convention Question, also known as CC-1, was a automatic ballot referral on the November 6, 1990 ballot in Montana, where it was defeated.

CC-1 Asked whether voters wanted to call for a constitutional convention.[1]

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.[2]
