Presidential inauguration tickets available through Rep. Hudson’s office

U.S. Rep. Richard Hudson on Wednesday announced his office will distribute a limited number of tickets to the presidential inauguration ceremony in January.

Hudson, a Republican who represents North Carolina’s 8th District, said the free tickets would be distributed on a “first-come, first-served” basis. At the presidential inauguration, scheduled for Jan. 20, President-elect Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Trump will take the oath of office and deliver his inaugural address at the U.S. Capitol.

Hudson’s office said North Carolinians would receive first priority for tickets. It’s unclear how many tickets Hudson’s office will receive. Tickets are standing room only and will be outdoors.

To request tickets for the presidential inauguration, visit hudson.house.gov/inauguration-requests. The deadline to request tickets is Dec. 6 at 5 p.m. Requests after that will be placed on a waiting list.

Tickets are not required to view the inauguration. Hudson’s office says large sections of the National Mall will be accessible to the general public and contain jumbo viewing screens. The tickets available through Hudson’s office will allow access to the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol grounds.

Starting on Dec. 7, Hudson’s office will notify people who have received tickets.

Hudson’s office says each request will be limited to five tickets. If a group has more than five people, a different member should submit an additional request and note it is connected to another party of people.

For groups with five or fewer people, Hudson’s office says multiple submissions will not increase the chances of receiving tickets, which are required for every person who enters the U.S. Capitol grounds. That includes children and infants.
