Unconventional Questions: The Hows, Whys, and Why Nots of a Constitutional Convention

On November 8, 2022, Alaskans will be asked once again to answer the question:  “Shall there be a Constitutional Convention?”  The proposition, required to be on the ballot every 10 years, has been rejected five times by voters.  Current circumstances, however, could lead to a different outcome on this vital issue in the upcoming 2022 election. Passions are high now, and a convention would put the entire structure of the State of Alaska on the table for political slicing and dicing.
