How to Get Tickets to the Inauguration

Constituents should act quickly to request tickets from their Congressman or Senator for President Obama's Jan. 21 inauguration.

Interested in attending the presidential inauguration in Washington, DC, in January? There are a limited number of tickets, so your best bet is to request them now from your member of Congress.

Each Senator and Representative receives a limited quantity of free tickets that they may distribute to the public at their discretion. 

To find your representative, enter your ZIP Code at the United States House of Representatives website.

In 2009, President Obama's inauguration attracted 1.8 million to the National Mall, according to an estimate from the Washington Post.

President Obama's swearing-in will take place at noon Monday, Jan. 21 on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol. (He'll be sworn in privately the day before, due to a constitutional requirement that he be sworn in by Jan. 20, since the 20th falls on a Sunday.) If you don't get a ticket, there are large screens set up on the mall to watch the goings-on. 

Viewing the swearing-in ceremonies from the National Mall does not require tickets. The non-ticketed area of the National Mall begins at Fourth Street NW.

The swearing-in and address will be followed by a parade down Pennsylvania Avenue, which is open to the public.

Many states have their own inaugural balls. For those interested in attending Inaugural Balls and the Parade, tickets are available through the Presidential Inaugural Committee.

@Gary: since it was a Republican who said that "the single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president," I think THEY should explain to the "millions of unemployed/underemployed people out there" why they did their damnedest to block any and all efforts to fix the economy by any means possible.
