Interactive: Join Our Constitutional Convention

In "Reconstituting The Constitution: How To Rewrite It," we invited readers to share their own thoughts on how we might change the founding document for the 21st century. We've gathered a sampling of proposed new amendments below. Choose to support or reject each one and the next amendment will appear. (When you're done, you can scroll through again to see how others voted.) We'll share the un-scientific results and let you know which ones were "ratified" by two-thirds of our virtual constitutional convention.
