Presidential inauguration tickets may be requested
Tickets to President Barack Obama’s second inauguration are available through the office of Fifth Congressional District Rep. Virginia Foxx and other members of Congress.
Tickets to the nation’s 57th Inaugural Ceremony, which will be held in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 21, are provided free of charge and are distributed through the offices of members of Congress.
Residents of the Fifth Congressional District interested in attending the event should contact Rep. Foxx to request preferred tickets. Foxx’s office is accepting ticket requests through Dec. 7, although tickets are not required to attend. Requests for up to four tickets per household may be submitted at http://www.foxx.house.gov/inauguration-day.
Each Congressional office receives a limited number of tickets to distribute to constituents. Due to the high volume of requests, tickets will be dispersed via lottery. For those drawn, tickets must be picked-up in person at Congresswoman Foxx’s Washington, D.C. office the weekend before the inauguration.
Fifth District constituents should be aware that no website or ticket outlet advertising the sale of inaugural swearing-in tickets is authentic. Tickets are free and are only available through members of Congress.
