2020 Chilean constitutional referendum

A constitutional referendum is tentatively scheduled to be held in Chile on 26 April 2020.[1][2][3] The planned referendum will ask Chileans if they want a new constitution, and if they want it to be drafted by a "Constitutional Convention" (made up by members elected directly for this convention) or a "Mixed Constitutional Convention" (made up in halves by currently-sitting members of Parliament and directly-elected citizens).[2] A second vote —expected to occur in October 2020, alongside with municipal and regional elections— would elect the members of the Constitutional Convention, and a third vote would accept or reject the new constitution after it is drafted, expected to occur in early 2022.[2]
