Bay City News Service—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 Congressional representatives' websites, including that of 9th District Rep. Barbara Lee, D-Oakland.
Lee's website provides this information on requesting tickets:
"Based on the volume of requests received, my office cannot guarantee that your request will be granted. If we are able to accommodate your request, you will receive and email or phone call from my office.
"Please keep in mind that based on prior allocations and demand, we will not likely be able to accommodate requests for more than 2 tickets per request.
"Also, please note that the deadline to submit a request is 11:59 p.m. PST on December 15, 2012."
Ticket request links were not yet available on the websites of Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer.
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.
