With Inauguration Day just 15 days away, the event has an official ticket for those who are lucky enough to procure a spot on the Capitol’s west side for prime viewing. 

President-elect Donald Trump will be sworn in by Supreme Court Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. at noon on Friday, Jan. 20. 

A map explaining the entry locations for various levels of ticket holders was also released.

The tickets and map were unveiled at a news conference held Thursday morning by Missouri Republican Sen. Roy Blunt, chairman of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies. For more information on the security restrictions that day, view the full map and instructions here

Blunt said House members will receive their allocated tickets on Monday and senators will get theirs on Tuesday. 

“I think there are more access points this year and maybe spread out a little bit more, so that whatever crowd is approaching those access points has an easier way to get there,”  Blunt said. “And hopefully, an easier way to get through the access point and move on immediately to your location for the swearing-in.”
