59th Presidential Inauguration

59th Presidential Inauguration

On December 16, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) announced that the official ceremony for the Inauguration on January 20, 2021, will have limited live attendance. Unfortunately, following long deliberations and consultations with public health experts and the Presidential Inaugural Committee, the JCCIC will not be distributing tickets to Congressional offices for constituents who have expressed interest in attending the ceremony. The JCCIC has stated that they are working to provide enhanced online viewing options to watch the ceremonies. The JCCIC will also be providing a limited number of commemorative tickets to each Congressional office. If you are interested in securing one of these tickets, please reach out to my Washington D. C. office at 202-225-6155. Since each congressional office will receive a limited amount of commemorative tickets for the Presidential Inauguration, we cannot guarantee ticket availability for every request received.

I will be sure to keep you updated with further information on viewing the virtual ceremonies as it becomes available.  You can also refer to the JCCIC website for real time information: https://www.inaugural.senate.gov/.
