Want a Ticket to Obama's Inauguration?

Here's how Campbell residents might be able to get one.


Although President Barack Obama's inauguration for his second term is not until January, Bay Area legislators are already collecting requests from constituents who hope to attend the ceremony.

Tickets for the 57th presidential inauguration on Jan. 21, 2013 in Washington, D.C. can be requested through local Congresswoman Anna Eshoo's (D-Palo Alto) website.

Ticket request links were not yet available on the websites of Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer as of publication time.

A maximum of two tickets can be requested, and only through the online forms on congressional websites. Requests will not be accepted by phone or e-mail.

A random lottery will be held by Dec. 13 to determine who will receive tickets to the ceremony.

Those seeking more information about the inauguration and how to request tickets can visit the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies' website at www.inaugural.senate.gov/2013/getting-tickets.

Wow. Thanks for the link, Matt. Have you ever used it to purchase tickets? Do you know how legit it is? I see tickets range from $279 to $12,500 ...
