The amendment process refers to the means by which those with the authority can change the Constitution of the United States. Article V of the U.S Constitution grants the right to amend the document to accommodate different issues and changes in the future.
The Constitution can be amended in two ways. The first is the proposed bill to have two-thirds majority vote in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. If the bill is approved in both houses, it goes to the states. The bill must get three-fourths of the states in order to become an amendment. Approval can occur through a vote of the legislature or through a Constitutional Convention where two-thirds of states agree.
