Connecticut became the 5th State in the Union on January 9, 1788.

Connecticut Offers: Constitutional Amendments by legislative referral, Recalls and Nominations.

Signature Requirements: 

  • Constitutional Amendments: 75% of the legislature voting in favor of them or a simple majority voting in favor two sessions in a row.
  • Constitutional Conventions can qualify by: 2/3 of the legislature voting for it. New Amendments will be considered and the ones chosen are then put before the voters to approve.
  • Recalls: 10% – 25% depending on the city.

 

Article XII of the Connecticut Constitution provides for the process of Amendments to be put before the voters along with the right of Constitutional Convention. Some communities have the right to recall officials by special “home rule”

State Statutes Title 7. Chapter 99 states All Charter Cities are mandated to have Initaitive and Referenda rights on Ordinances.
