Want Tickets To Obama's Democratic Convention Speech?

Here's how.

Yesterday, the Democratic National Convention Committee announced how Georgians can see Barack Obama's historic speech accepting his Party's nomination for President in person at Denver's Invesco Field.

More than half of the 75,000 seats at the stadium will go to residents of Colorado, host state for the Convention, on Thursday, August 28, 2008 with the rest of the tickets going to the remaining 55 states and territories.

Georgians can request tickets for the final night of the Democratic National Convention by contacting the state Campaign for Change office at (404) 840-7142 no later than August 12th. When requesting tickets, individuals will be asked to provide their phone number, how they plan to get to Denver, and where they plan to stay during the Convention.

Beginning on August 12th, the Georgia Campaign for Change office will begin notifying those selected to receive tickets to Obama's nomination acceptance speech will be notified by text message or email. Those not selected will be placed on a waiting list in case more seats become available.

"We are delighted to be able to open the doors of the Convention to the public on this historic night," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 2008 Permanent Convention Chair. "There is a growing movement for positive change in Colorado, the West, and across the country, and what better way to foster it then to have more Americans participate in the fourth night of the Convention."
