I did a little research this morning on how to get tickets to the Inauguration January 20, 2009. Tickets will be distributed through local elected congressional representatives in about two to three weeks. They are not sure how many tickets they will be getting as of now. I just called Stearns office and they are currently writing down names of people who want these tickets (free). I am the 50th person and requested 2 tickets. Stearns Aide was very cordial and said they would let me know one way or another whether I could get the 2 tickets I requested. The first person who called wanted 15 tickets, however, the Aide said that they will be distributing tickets in ones and twos. Another internet search said that about 50,000 tickets will be distributed to the congressional rep.
Perhaps you live in Corrine Brown's district or another district and would like to get on their list.....
Tickets that are on sale on the Internet currently are goling for at least $1000 each and there are several warnings for buyer beware for these tickets.
