LWV Opposes Memorial for US Constitutional Convention

The League of Women Voters is concerned that there are many unresolved questions about the powers and processes of an Article V US Constitutional Convention. After an extensive study, LWVUS adopted a position that a constitutional convention should only be called when certain key conditions are met. Congress has yet to make specific rules which would meet these conditions such as counting states based on a single topic, preventing a "runaway convention," voting by delegate, fair representation, and transparency.

While LWVWA supports the ultimate goal of SJM 8002, the purpose of proposing a free and fair elections amendment to the US Constitution, we believe that the lack of safeguards in Article V of the US Constitution are too risky for our democracy and thus are opposing it.
