An amendment, in order to become part of the Constitution, must be ratified by three-fourths of the states.There are two "Mode(s) of Ratification" in Article V of the US Constitution. One is ratification by the legislatures of three-fourths of all the states. The second is ratification by special Conventions (called for the purpose of ratifying the proposed amendment) of three-fourths of all the states.Amendments can be proposed for ratification in two different ways. One is where two-thirds of both Houses of Congress propose a specific amendment. The second is where two thirds of the legislatures apply to Congress to call a Convention for the purpose of proposing amendments. This second method of proposing amendments for ratification has never been used.In the first method, Congress decides on the wording of the proposed amendment. In the second, the Convention decides on the wording of the proposed amendment. The Convention may propose as many amendments as it deems appropriate.Congress decides whether states can ratify via their state legislatures or through special state conventions. The first method is used unless the second is required by the wording of the amendment.The amendment process is found in article 5 of the Constitution ( see the related link)
