Frequently Asked Questions

The 59th Inaugural Ceremonies, named Our Determined Democracy, take place on January 20th, 2021 on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol.

The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) distributes tickets to Members of the 117th Congress for the ceremonies at the U.S. Capitol. However, congressional offices have yet to receive an update on the status or availability of tickets given the pandemic.

Due to the global pandemic, the ticket distribution process is being assessed by JCCIC. At this time, we do not know how many tickets, if any, congressional offices will be given for distribution.

Senator Van Hollen wants to accommodate as many constituents as possible, so if you are a Maryland resident and wish to request tickets, please complete the form below.
