Sept. 17 is Constitution Day! It commemorates the day in 1787 when 39 of the 55 state delegates to the Constitutional Congress signed the US Constitution, which established the structure and function of the US federal government.
You can celebrate Constitution Day by registering to vote. The Cambridge Election Commission will be registering voters in Lobby 10 today between 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. (must be a U.S. citizen).
