Thank you for your interest in the 2021 Presidential Inauguration! The 59th Presidential Inauguration Swearing-in Ceremonies will be held at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, January 20, 2021. Each Congressional office receives a limited number of tickets for the Swearing-In Ceremony. I am pleased to take requests from residents of Florida's 9th Congressional District for tickets to this ceremony. Due to high demand, I can only give tickets to those who reside in Florida's 9th Congressional District.
This year’s ceremony will be uniquely affected by the current public health crisis. While we don't know if there will be a public gathering or issuance of inaugural tickets in 2021, we are collecting requests and will keep you updated as we know more. To request tickets, please click here. Please understand that submitting this request does not guarantee you will receive a ticket.
- Tickets are limited and it is possible that they will not be distributed through Members of Congress. The system for ticket distribution will be determined based on the requests, tickets, and other logistical concerns, and will most likely be a lottery system.
- All ticket requests must be submitted by January 1st, 2021.
- Ticket requests from non-constituents will not be considered.
- In previous presidential inaugurations, there has been a large section on the National Mall (past 4th Street) that will be accessible to the general public, if you do not receive tickets. Please note that the COVID-19 public health crisis may significantly impact this. We will share more information as it becomes available.
- This year’s ticket process may be further delayed in order to reflect the status of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Coronavirus restrictions in Washington, D.C. are determined by the government of the District of Columbia. Please monitor coronavirus.dc.gov for the most up-to-date information on health and safety requirements for visitors.
Accessibility services are provided in each ticketed section, and upon entering the section will be available by request to the Accessibility Services Representative.
Security measures will be in place and taken very seriously. Be prepared to go through layers of safety measures, to include metal detectors and bag checks. Security requires ticket holders to arrive hours early, carrying no seats or large bags.
Transportation options will be limited. Due to street closures around the Capitol grounds and massive crowds using public transit, be prepared to walk several blocks and to wait in long lines.
Washington winters are cold – please be prepared. Temperatures on January 20 in Washington have run from an average low of 28°F to an average high of 43°F.
The JCCIC often does not make final decisions on the ticket process until several weeks following the presidential election. Ticket requesters are required to contingency-plan their own transportation and accommodations accordingly.
