I will go  to  he  website  ou mentioned,but  the  question was: Number  of  times that the  State  constitution  in Cal.  has  been  ammended.
I've seen the number 27, but I haven't been able to verify that. Wikipedia has a list of 23 of them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Amendments_to_the_California_constitution. (There are 24 on the list, but one is a duplicate.)

The CA constitution is easier to amend than most -- here's an interesting opinion article that talks about it: http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-oe-hodson4-2009feb04,0,2927280.story.

Often instead of an actual amendment they make "revisions" to the CA constitution -- there have been more than 500 of those.
