Amendment Process
Article V of the Constitution specifies that the Constitution can be modified but the process to change the charter has only occurred 27 times. Amendments can be proposed in one of two ways: passed by a two-thirds majority of Congress or when two-thirds of the states call for a national constitutional convention to make the change. Once the amendment is proposed, three-fourths of the state legislatures or state conventions must approve or ratify the change.
