The deadline has come and gone to put your name in to Schumer’s statewide lottery for tickets to President-Elect Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration. The random selection process was devised by Sen. Chuck Schumer’s office.
Schumer says they received so many requests for tickets that holding a lottery was the only way to keep the selection process fair. Schumer’s office is giving out 350 tickets to the inauguration on January 20th.

Other Congressmen and women are holding lotteries as well. Congressman-elect Chris Lee is accepting ticket requests by phone or email. Congressman-elect Eric Massa is taking requests at (585) 425-4013.
