The President-elect and Vice President-elect of the United States will be sworn into office on Wednesday, January 20, 2021. The inauguration ceremony, organized by the Joint Congressional Committee Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC), will be held on the west front of the U.S. Capitol.

The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies has not issued guidelines for the 2021 Presidential Inaugural Ceremony. 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.

The JCCIC is committed to traditional, inclusive, and safe ceremonies and will continue to monitor the situation and provide information to all Members as it comes available. The JCCIC may provide Members of Congress a limited set of viewing area tickets to distribute, most of which are for a standing area at or near the east end of the National Mall. If you would like to request tickets to the presidential inauguration, please see below for information and instructions:

Please Note

  • Anticipating increased interest in the 2021 Inauguration and the limited number of tickets each congressional office will receive, Congressman Carbajal's office will likely not be able to accommodate every request for tickets. In addition to requesting tickets through Congressman Carbajal's office, you can also request tickets through Senators Feinstein and Harris.
  • Requesting tickets does not guarantee entrance to the Inauguration Ceremony. 
  • If tickets are distributed, they must be picked up in our DC office no later than 5PM on January 19th, the day prior to Inauguration.
  • Incomplete forms or ticket requests from persons living outside of California's 24th Congressional District, will not be considered. 

Due to the ongoing public health emergency related to COVID-19, circumstances surrounding the inauguration may change.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact my office at (202) 225-3601 or email my Inauguration Ticket Coordinator at
