How is the constitutional amended?

Article V of the Constitution provides two methods to propose amendments and two methods for ratification. Constitutional amendment proposals in method one are by joint resolution of the Congress with a 2/3 vote in each house. (This is the only method that has been used.) Method two is by way of petitions to Congress by 2/3 of the states to conduct a convention for proposing amendments, and then holding such a convention. (An Article V convention has never been held). Amendments proposed by either the congressional method or the convention method are then submitted to the states for ratification. There are two possible methods here as well. Ratification can be done by way of the votes of the state legislatures or by specially elected delegates to state ratification conventions. In either case, ratification requires the votes of 3/4 of the states. The convention method was used in the case of the 21st Amendment (repeal of prohibition).

When is it possible for a Constitutional Convention to be held?

The question is inaccurate in the first place. The Constitution only authorizes an Article V Convention, that is a "convention to propose amendments" to our present Constitution. A "constitutional convention" has the authority to propose a new constitution and is not authorized to do so under our present Constitution. If 2/3rds of the State Legislatures request it, Congress must call for an Article V Convention. At that convention, any and all amendments may be considered and voted upon to be proposed for ratification. It requires a two-thirds vote of the convention to pass any proposed amendment followed by a three-fourths favorable vote by the states to ratify a proposed amendment. According to the Congressional Record, all 50 states have submitted 750 applications for an Article V Convention. Texts of the applications can be read at www.foavc.org which has photographic copies of the congressional record pages showing the applications. Congress, therefore, is obligated to call a convention but thus far has refused to do so.
