Presidential Inauguration Ticket Request Form
The President and Vice President of the United States will be sworn into office during a ceremony on Wednesday, January 20, 2021. The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) is responsible for the planning and execution of the Inauguration of the President at the U.S. Capitol.
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.”
2021 Presidential Inaugural Parade
If you are interested in being part of the Presidential Inaugural Parade, apply on https://21inauguralparade.smapply.net . All applications are collected and organized by the Joint Task Force-National Capital Region (JTF-NCR) Inaugural Parade Application Office. This selection process normally occurs in early December.
- 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 38th Congressional District of California will not be answered.
- Ticket requests that do not include a fully completed form will not be answered.
- The deadline will be announced at a future date.
