New York’s Constitutional Convention: Yay or Nay?

The future of New York’s constitution is on the ballot this November 7, 2017. Every 20 years the complicated question of whether to hold a Constitutional Convention is put before the voters of the State of New York. During a convention, the State Constitution may be revised and amended.
