Presidential Inauguration Tickets

The 59th Presidential Inauguration Swearing-in Ceremonies will be held at the Capitol on Wednesday, January 20, 2021. For additional information, please visit https://inaugural.senate.gov and check back frequently since it will be updated as more information becomes available.

Each Congressional office receives a limited number of tickets for the Swearing-In Ceremony. I am pleased to take requests from residents of Pennsylvania's 4th Congressional District for tickets to this ceremony. Due to high demand, I can only give tickets to those who reside in Pennsylvania’s 4th Congressional District. Proof of 4th District residency will be required. You may look up your representative at https://www.house.gov/representatives/find/.

Please understand that submitting this request does not guarantee you will receive a ticket. Inaugural activities will look different this year due to COVID-19. Be sure to pursue tickets with your Senators and through the public process for the greatest chance of receiving tickets.

2021 Presidential Inauguration Tickets

The JCCIC will provide Members of Congress a limited set of viewing area tickets to distribute, most of which are for a standing area at or near the east end of the National Mall. If you would like to request tickets to the presidential inauguration:

  • Read the “Preliminary Points” section of this form.
  • Fill out the “Inauguration Tickets Request Form.”

Preliminary Points

  • The JCCIC will not inform Members of Congress what/how many viewing area tickets they will be provided until a few weeks after the presidential election occurs on November 3, 2020.
  • The JCCIC does not release the actual tickets to Members of Congress until about a week before the inauguration ceremony itself. Due to the global pandemic, this year’s ticket distribution process is being assessed.
  • Attending a presidential inauguration is a physical activity and a bit of an endurance (and patience) test. Crowds are large; lines are long; roadways into D.C. and the Capitol area are congested or closed; the Washington Metro subway system features long wait times due to crowds; standing areas for the inauguration ceremony are very crowded even though they are ticketed; arriving at a viewing area at least a couple of hours early is a necessity to do an adequate job of “ensuring” that one gets in; and Washington can be cold in January.
  • Ticket requests from persons who are not residents of the 4th Congressional District of Pennsylvania will not be answered.
  • Ticket requests that do not include a fully completed form will not be answered.
  • The deadline to request tickets will be announced at a future date.
