Obama Announces LA Town Hall for Thursday, Here's How to Attend
President Barack Obama's trip to Southern California just got a lot better. Not only will he be hosting a town hall in Orange County on Wednesday, he'll have one in Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon, too.
Via the White House, here's the low down for getting into this event: "This event is free and open to the public but TICKETS ARE REQUIRED. A limited number of tickets will be available through an online lottery. Individuals interested in registering for this lottery should enter their contact information at www.whitehouse.gov/latownhall. Individuals will then be selected at random and contacted with event location and ticket pick-up information. Individuals who are selected will be given two tickets. The online form to register for the lottery will be available online until noon, Pacific on Tuesday, March 17th."
The town hall location will be announced to those who get tickets (and yes, it will be in LA and pretty central to everything). Program begins at 1:00 p.m. with doors opening at 11:00 a.m.
