Presidential Inauguration Information

A small number of tickets will be made available to each member of Congress for the official swearing-in ceremony. My office is currently accepting requests from constituents of North Carolina’s Second District only. (If you live elsewhere, please contact your member of Congress). To request tickets, please send an email to and include your name, address, phone number, email address and the number of tickets you would like. Because of the limited number of tickets, I cannot guarantee we will be able to accommodate all requests. If we are able to fill your request, my office will be in touch in December.

In addition to being placed on our list for possible Inauguration tickets, you will also receive an email from my office when new Inauguration information is released. Some Inaugural events, such as the parade, will not require a ticket and that information will be disbursed when it is available. A ticket is not required to view the swearing-in ceremony from the National Mall.
