Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo has announced a lottery for a limited number of tickets to attend an address by Pope Francis before a Joint Meeting of Congress on Thursday, September 24, 2015. Only constituents of the 18th Congressional District can participate. Ticket holders will be able to view the address from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol via televised broadcast.
“I’m excited to be able to extend an opportunity to my constituents to take part in this historic event,” Eshoo said. “While not all who wish to attend will be awarded a ticket, my office is working to ensure the lottery is conducted fairly and make the process a good one.”
To participate, 18th Congressional District constituents can fill out an online form by Tuesday, September 8, by noon PST. There is only one entry per person and each entry will be for two tickets. Rep. Eshoo’s office will inform those who are selected by Thursday, September 10th. The complete rules of the lottery can be found with the online form to participate.
