Each Congressional office receives a limited number of tickets for the Swearing-In Ceremony. I am pleased to take requests from residents of Colorado’s 5th Congressional District for tickets to this ceremony. ***Proof of 5th District residency will be required.
Only two tickets will be available per request and we are unable to provide tickets to any other inaugural activity.
Tickets for the Inauguration can be obtained through an individual's United States Senator or United States Representative. You may look up your representative here.
Tickets are limited. Tickets will not be mailed and must be picked up by the person who submitted the request using a valid government-issued ID. Please make arrangements to pick up your tickets in person at my Washington, DC office located at 2371 Rayburn H.O.B. from 9:00am to 5:00pm on January 19, 2021. Tickets will not be available for pick-up on Inauguration Day, as the office will be closed.
All ticket requests must be submitted by January 1st, 2021.
To request a ticket through our office, please read the following carefully before submitting a request:
The JCCIC will not inform Members of Congress what/how many viewing area tickets they will be provided until a few weeks after the presidential election occurs on November 3, 2020. The Office of Congressman Doug Lamborn will not grant requests for inauguration tickets until the JCCIC has made its announcement to Members of Congress regarding what the Members will be getting. We understand this is not the best situation for reserving hotel rooms in greater Washington, DC for the night before and the night of the presidential inauguration, a heavily attended event. Ticket requesters are required nonetheless to contingency-plan accordingly on their own.
Attending a presidential inauguration is a physical activity and a bit of an endurance (and patience) test. Crowds are large; lines are long; roadways into D.C. and the Capitol area are congested or closed; the Washington Metro subway system features long wait times due to crowds; standing areas for the inauguration ceremony are very crowded even though they are ticketed; arriving at a viewing area at least a couple of hours early is a necessity to do an adequate job of “ensuring” that one gets in; and Washington can be cold in January. Also, very importantly: We cannot at this time know how the current COVID environment will impact this event.
The JCCIC does not release the actual tickets to Members of Congress until about a week before the inauguration ceremony itself.
For those who get tickets:
Ticket requests from persons who are not residents of the 5th Congressional District of Colorado may not be answered
Ticket requests that do not include a fully filled-out Information Sheet may not be answered
