in the electoral college during the election

candidate elected vice president, each elector

president and vice president, respectively.

Court Bans School Prayer: 40th Anniversary
(1962) The US Supreme Court ruled that a prayer

Amendment's separation on church and state.

to the First Amendment when it disallowed an
Alabama law that permitted a daily one-minute
period of silent meditation or prayer in public
schools June 1, 1985.
Amendment Ratified: Anniversary (1971) The
26th Amendment to the Constitution granted the
right to vote in all federal, state and local
elections to all persons 18 years or older.
On the date of ratification the US gained an
additional 11 million voters. Up until this
time, the minimum voting age was set by the
states; in most states it was 21.
