Which is the most important amendment to the US Constitution

Only the single favorite choice will win the poll.
The poll ends 20:00, 30th Dec 2020. The poll supervisor is David Barnsdale (kroekus@googlemail.com). Contact the poll supervisor if you need help.

Give each of the following choices a rank, where a smaller-numbered rank means that you prefer that choice more. For example, give your top choice the rank 1. Give choices the same rank if you have no preference between them. You do not have to use all the possible ranks. All choices initially have the lowest possible rank.

Ballot reporting is enabled for this poll. Your ballot (the rankings you assign to choices) will be visible in the poll results when the poll ends. However, your ballot will still be anonymous: no personally identifying information will appear.
