Want Obama Inauguration Tix? Know Your Local Rep!
If you're willing to brave the chill of DC in January to see some warmth injected into the White House and to rep LA in the crowds, there's only one way to get tickets: Ask your local Congressional rep. LAist's sister site DCist explains the process via a press release:
Tickets to the 56th Inaugural Ceremonies will be provided free of charge and distributed through Members of the 111th Congress. The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies does not provide tickets to the public. Members of the public interested in attending the Inaugural Ceremonies should contact their Member of Congress or U.S. Senators to request tickets.
They also caution that the public shouldn't fall prey to ticket scams, such as purchasing tickets from brokers, outlets, or websites, since they simply aren't provided in that manner.Want to write your rep?
