Constitution Day

liberty.jpg
On September 17, 1787 - 222 years ago - the delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the U.S. Constitution. Five years ago Congress designated Thursday, September 17th as Constitution Day, a day to recognize the importance of this enduring document.

To become a United States citizen, immigrants must pass a test that includes questions about the Constitution, U.S. history and the structure of our government. The testing officer asks up to 10 out of 100 questions that are available for immigrants to study prior to the test.

Take a sample naturalization test online or check out these sample questions:

1) If the president and vice president can no longer serve, who becomes president?
2) The House of Representatives has how many voting members?
3) We elect a U.S. Senator for how many years?
4) What is one right or freedom from the First Amendment?

Check back tomorrow for answers.
