Constitutional conventions on the ballot: This topic refers to ballot measures regarding constitutional conventions. Constitutional conventions, also often known as ConCons, are gatherings of elected delegates who propose revisions and amendments to a state's constitution. Forty-four states have rules that govern how, in their state, a constitutional convention can be called. Some state laws require the question automatically appear on the ballot every so often. The question may appear every 10, 16 and 20 years. For more specific details and participating states read about constitutional conventions here.
