Transcript must be proposed by vote of three-fourths of the members elected to each house, and ratified by three-fourths of the electors voting in the whole state, and at least two-thirds of those voting in each county. After the expiration of twenty- five years, for further amendments, only two-thirds of the elected members and two-thirds of the electors will be required. 2. In New Hampshire an amendment can be submitted only by a constitutional convention, and requires for ratification two-thirds of all electors voting. The convention can be called not oftener than once in seven years, and the process of calling it is excessively difficult. 3.

Ten states require that a majority of the votes cast at the election at which can- 57
