in the year eighteen hundred and eighty-seven, and every
twenty years thereafter, the sense of the people in regard to
calling a convention for altering this Constitution; and if a
majority of voters at such election or elections shall vote for a
convention, the General Assembly, at its next session, shall
provide by law for the assembling of such convention, and for
the election of Delegates thereto. Each county and Legisla-
