Alaskans interested in taking part in the events surrounding the swearing in of Donald Trump as president can follow this link to the home page of Sen. Lisa Murkowski. In the past, Alaska-specific galas have been held and that is likely to be the case for the 58th presidential inauguration, although plans haven’t been announced.

Fill out the form at Sen. Murkowski’s official web site and your name will be entered into a lottery. To request a ticket you must be an Alaska resident and be able to pick the tickets up in person on Jan. 18-19. Tickets cannot be mailed.

Must Read has learned that a couple of hundred people have already logged onto the site and filled out the form.

A complete list of inaugural events is at this link.

The Alaska Republican Party reports it is in planning stages for an inaugural gala in early January. The tentative date is Jan. 7 in Anchorage, although it’s expected that galas and balls will be held in other communities as well.
