"A sacred respect for the constitutional law is the vital principle, the sustaining energy of a free government."
Once every 20 years…
a 37-member Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) convenes to conduct a thorough review and propose amendments to the Florida Constitution. The amendments that the commission approve go directly on the ballot for voters to decide. Currently, Florida is the only state where this happens, and it’s happening right now.
Did you know?
How it works
Once the CRC has held public hearings across the state seeking public input, the commission will choose amendments to appear on the November 2018 ballot for voters to decide.
The Protect Florida Democracy public education program is intended to help you — the voters — understand the importance of this constitution revision process. You don’t have to be an expert in constitutional law to recognize the critical importance of protecting our constitution from amendments that may ultimately impact the balance of power among the three branches of government.
