CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

PROPOSED CALL FOR A
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

This proposal deals with a call for a state constitutional convention.  The last such convention was held in 1969-70, and a new Constitution was adopted in 1970.  The 1970 Illinois Constitution requires that the question of calling a convention be placed before the voters every 20 years.  In 1988, the electors rejected the call for a constitutional convention, with 75% voting against calling a convention and 25% voting in favor of calling a convention. If you believe the 1970 Illinois Constitution needs to be revised through the convention process, vote "YES" on the question calling for the constitutional convention. If you believe that a constitutional convention is not necessary, or that changes can be accomplished through other means, vote "NO" on the calling of a constitutional convention.
