  Presidential Inauguration Information
Every four years, our nation’s capital celebrates the excitement and pageantry of the Presidential Inauguration. As in years before, my office receives many requests from North Carolinians who want to witness the swearing in of our nation’s president. This year is no exception. To date, my office has received thousands of requests to attend this year’s inauguration, which is on January 20th.

Unfortunately, the number of requests we have received far exceeds the number of tickets my office will be assigned, and we will not be able to accommodate everyone’s request for tickets in the ticketed area. Any North Carolinian wishing to attend should know that there will be a general admission area on the National Mall that will accommodate those who do not have tickets. I encourage you to take advantage of that opportunity as well as the other many events that are planned for this historic inaugural. For information on these events, and to help plan your trip, please visit http://inaugural.senate.gov.

Additional information can be found on the Presidential Inaugural Committee's website, http://www.pic2009.org.

As always, I also encourage all North Carolinians who are visiting Washington, DC to stop by my office and say hello. We’re always glad to see you.
