Requests must be received by Friday, December 14 at 5pm CST

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that the deadline to register for the lottery to receive tickets to the 57th Inauguration Ceremony in Washington, D.C. is Friday, December 14 at 5:00pm CST.  Those wishing to enter the lottery must visit: http://loebsack.house.gov/inauguration and fill out the form.  There is no charge to enter the lottery or for the tickets, though winners are responsible for their own travel arrangements.

Winners of the lottery will be notified at a later date if they were chosen to receive tickets.  They will also receive information at that time about how to claim their tickets.

Inauguration Day is Monday, January 21st 2013.   It is expected there will be a variety of events that will not require tickets, including a public viewing area of the Inaugural ceremony on the National Mall and the public Inauguration parade. Iowans unable to attain tickets through Congressman Loebsack’s office are encouraged to monitor the Inauguration Planning Committee website, http://inaugural.senate.gov/, for further details on non-ticketed events.

Please be aware that there are a few organizations trying to sell fake tickets to people.  Tickets are only being provided free of charge from official government offices, and tickets must be picked up in person from Loebsack’s office before the Inauguration. Any group that suggests differently is providing incorrect information.
