Tickets for New Yorkers seeking to attend President Obama’s inauguration on Jan. 20 will be awarded through a special lottery conducted by the office of Sen. Charles E. Schumer.

The senator announced Thursday he will distribute tickets to those requesting them through a random drawing to be held on Dec. 14. The free tickets are provided through congressional offices, with requests accepted only through Dec. 13 and submitted only on the Schumer website.
