 Article V of the U.S. Constitution allows 2/3 of the state legislatures to call a Constitutional Convention to amend the Constitution. Only 34 of the 50 states are needed to call the convention. 

Arizona became the 29th state legislature to do so this week. The convention is scheduled for Dallas, TX this summer and only five more state legislatures need to pass the resolution to effectively rewrite the Constitution. 

Constitutional experts say that the rules of the convention would be made by the delegates themselves, so anything could happen regardless of the intent — a runaway convention that could endanger some of our most sacred rights. Each state gets one vote, regardless of population size, so Alabama has equal weight with California. 

The states where legislation remains to be voted on are Washington, Idaho, Montana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Virginia, South Carolina, and Maine. If you vote in one of these states, call your state representatives and your friends and ask them to oppose it.
