Codified as the 26th Amendment to the Constitution, the joint resolution was passed by Congress on March 23, 1971, and ratified by the states by July 1--more quickly than any other amendment in U.S. history.
Congress could either propose amendments backed by two-thirds majority of both of its Houses or call a convention to propose amendments at the request of two-thirds of the state legislatures.
Congress was persuaded to approve the amendment in 1919, and it was ratified on August 26, 1920.
