Drawing for inauguration tickets Dec. 10

Nevada Sen. Harry Reid announced that his office will hold a drawing Dec. 10 to select Nevadans who submit requests for tickets to the 57th quadrennial Presidential Inauguration.

A limited number of tickets to the Inaugural swearing-in ceremony will be distributed to each U.S. Senate office. Nevadans who enter into this drawing sponsored by Reid’s office will have a chance to attend the Inauguration free-of-charge.

“Every four years from the steps of the Capitol, the beginning of an administration brings new opportunities for our country to join together to become stronger,” said Reid. “It is an honor to provide Nevadans with an opportunity to take part in this historic occasion and I invite Nevadans who want to attend to sign up for a ticket drawing on my website http://www.reid.senate.gov.”

Tickets to the Inauguration are provided free of charge. Senator Reid’s office will not pay for travel expenses or for accommodations in Washington D.C. No other organization, website or ticket outlet has received legitimate inaugural swearing-in tickets to sell or otherwise distribute.

All applications must be submitted on-line and no materials will be accepted via regular mail.

For more information or to submit any changes to your request, contact Senator Reid office at (202) 224-1250.
