Now that the Presidential Election is over, politicos are beginning to move forward with other priorities -- including celebrating the inauguration of Barack Obama's second term in office. The event will take place on Monday, January 21, 2013. The official website for the 2013 inauguration notes that "tickets for the Inaugural swearing-in ceremonies will be distributed in January 2013 by both Senators and Representatives elected (or reelected) this November."
MIKULSKI TAKING INAUGURATION TICKET REQUESTS: Indeed, U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski's office already has a request form up and running for Marylanders who are interested in receiving inauguration tickets. You can sign-up to try and score some tickets now.
Senator Cardin's office is not yet taking ticket requests, but they posted the following note:
BEN CARDIN: It is still early in the planning process for the inaugural events, and it will be a few weeks before I will be able to take names of people interested in tickets. Please check my website after the Thanksgiving holiday for more information. When I have tickets available, I will be distributing them via lottery and not on a first-come, first-served basis, and there will be plenty of time to apply.
Maryland Juice will post more inauguration details as they come in!
