Tickets for Inaugural in demand

Washington, D.C. (WWLP) — Hundreds of thousands of people will be descending on Washington, D.C. for President Barack Obama’s second Inauguration on Monday, January 21st.  

They’ll be there to witness an historic event, that comes only every four years.

For those looking to attend the inaugural swearing-in ceremony, tickets are obtained through your U.S. Senator, or member of the House of Representatives.  

The tickets are free but they can be hard to come by.  There’s a limited amount and they go fast.

Some congressional offices have instituted the lottery system for distributing the tickets.

The Presidential swearing-in ceremony is held outdoors on the west front steps of the Capitol.
