State voters would decide whether to call a convention of delegates that could propose a new state constitution, under a resolution filed Thursday by state Rep. Demetrius Newton, D-Birmingham. 

Under Newton's plan, Alabama voters would decide during the June 2012 primary election whether to hold a convention. If they voted for the proposal, they would elect 105 convention delegates, one from each state House of Representatives district, during the November 2012 presidential election. The top vote getter in each district would be elected, even if he or she didn't win a majority of the votes.
