Constitution Day, Sept. 17, 2022, is the 235th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution at the end of the federal convention in Philadelphia. Few days in United States history are more important. In 1788, when the first seven articles of the Constitution were ratified by the states, they became “the supreme Law of the Land,” and many provisions remain unchanged.
This year, Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8, in just over seven weeks. Pursuant to the Constitution, the midterm elections will decide 35 seats in the United States Senate, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and many state offices. We live in politically turbulent times, and the results of these election s will determine the direction of American government for at least two years.
