Constitution Day Event
Join us for our Constitution Day event! On Thursday, September 16, Dr. Meghan Leonard from Politics and Government will give a free presentation, “The 26th Amendment at 50: The Expansion (and Restriction) of Voting Rights for Young Americans.”
The presentation will cover four main topics: first, what is the 26th Amendment and why was it passed. Second, what do we know about the youth vote, and why are young people less likely to turn out to vote than other groups. Third, what is voter suppression and how is it being targeted at the youth vote (and why). Finally, what can students do to encourage voting and increase youth turnout.
The event will be held in the Circus Room at Bone Student Center from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. This is a free event and no registration is required.
