What is the difference between a legislative bond measure, a legislative constitutional amendment, and an initiative constitutional amendment? How many of each are on the ballot?

  • Constitution -

    What ballot are you referring to?

    In the federal constitution, there is no such thing as an initiative. Constitutional amendments are initiated by Congress or by a Constitutional Convention. (The latter has never happened since the Bill of Rights)

    It sounds like you are referring to State government bond issues and initiatives.
