Owens puts spotlight on constitution, voting

To bring awareness to the importance of voting, Owens Community College's student government is inviting students and area residents to participate in a Constitution Day observance tomorrow and Friday.

Student representatives will provide voter registration forms to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. tomorrow and from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Friday in the Commons Atrium at the Findlay-area campus on Bright Road.

Voter registration forms will be available for visitors from noon to 4 p.m. Friday in the Student Health and Activities Center on Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township.

In addition to voter registration, participants will have the opportunity to receive a free U.S. Constitution pocket booklet, “U.S. Constitution and Fascinating Facts About It,” at both campuses.

Established in 2004, Constitution Day celebrates the moment in U.S. history when 39 delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the document that defined and separated powers of the federal government on Sept. 17, 1787.
