D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton says she has fewer than 200 inauguration tickets available, but she is asking colleagues to donate more.

Over 3,500 D.C. residents put their names into the hat for Holmes Norton's inauguration ticket drawing, which is scheduled for Monday at noon.

Holmes Norton says the numbers will be drawn at random by two members of the D.C. National Guard that correlate to entries in the Congresswoman's lottery. Winners will be notified by phone and have to show ID to pick them up, and of course, they cannot be sold.

People who don't win can still head to the National Mall to watch the festivities, but tickets are required to access the ground of the U.S. Capitol.
