Presidential Inauguration

In light of the public health crisis presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, on December 16, 2020, the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) announced tickets to the inaugural ceremonies will not be available for Members of Congress to distribute to their constituents as has been done in previous years.

As a result, my office is unable to provide tickets to the 2021 Presidential Inauguration.
