2009 Presidential Inauguration

Each Member of the House of Representatives will only receive 198 tickets to the Inauguration.  Since Election Day, my office has received well over 10,000 requests for tickets.  Unfortunately, my office can no longer take requests for tickets at this time.

Please be aware of scams. There have been many misleading websites cliaming that tickets are available to be purchased. Tickets to the swearing-in ceremony are only distributed by Members of Congress.

A ticket is not required to attend the Inauguration, but is required to stand in reserved areas on the West Front of the Capitol Building. Arrangements are being made to accommodate the large number of people who are expected to attend without tickets.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee will release information regarding which areas along the National Mall will be open to the general public. For more information, please visit:
