READ: Gov. Reynolds Puts Constitutional Convention Question On November Ballot
On Thurs., Sept. 3, Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a proclamation directing that ballots in the general election have a question as to whether Iowans want to convene a constitutional convention.
Iowa's constitution requires that every 10 years, the people of the state vote in the general election on whether to call a constitutional convention.
If a majority of voters approve the measure calling for the convention, the Iowa Legislature would be responsible for electing delegates to go to a convention and submitting proposals for amendments to Iowa's constitution. Read the full text of the proclamation.
