Constitution Referendum

What is a Referendum?

A referendum is the process by which the IRC can put out a vote to the general residence population. We hold them annually so we can make any necessary amendments! Residents can take that time to review our constitution and vote on any changes. The current copy of our constitution is included here on this page.

Our 2024 constitution referendum will begin with a referendum proposal meeting on March 6th at 8:30pm in the Innis Events Room. Any constituent can attend in order to propose amendments. Once proposed amendments are approved by the IRC, they will be listed here on this page. Referendum voting will be conducted alongside executive election voting from March 17th-24th. All amendments need a two-thirds supermajority in order to pass.
