The first ever, historic Convention of States Simulation is now complete. One-hundred and thirty-seven delegates representing every state in the nation convened in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, Sept. 21-23. It was an amazing experience and the Convention operated flawlessly. If you watch the live stream link below, we know you'll agree.
The full Convention will be issuing a statement on Monday morning, which will include the proposed Amendments which were successfully voted out.
We know you are anxious to see the complete results, and we appreciate your patience. As an independent assembly, the statement about the final results from the Convention must come from the body, and not our organization. We will circulate it on behalf of the Convention.

Download the Convention Rules
In 2015, the Convention of States Project issued a discussion draft of model rules for a convention addressing an agenda definited by the COS legislative application. These rules were not created out of thin air: they are updated versions of actual rules employed successfully by prior interstate conventions. The rules for this simulation are based on the those model convention rules.
