Alaska’s state constitution was ratified in 1956. While the document has been amended numerous times since then, it has never been revisited in its entirety. That could change if voters approve a ballot measure this November asking whether Alaska should revisit its constitution by holding a convention with elected delegates. Whether or not the measure passes could have a major impact on the state’s political future.
Alaska Public Media is partnering with UAA Seawolf Debate and Commonwealth North to host a debate between advocates on both sides of the issue. Other media organizations will also be able to pose questions.
Who: On the pro-convention side — Bob Bird and Loren Leman. On the anti-convention side — Joelle Hall and Matt Shuckerow.
