Be Part of History: Attend President Obama’s Acceptance Speech


Want to attend the Democratic National Convention speech when President Obama accepts his nomination for a second term? This is your chance! You have to take care of getting to Charlotte, North Carolina, but we have your tickets to the event. We only have a limited number of tickets, but this is your chance to sign up.

If you are a Delegate, Alternate or a Standing Committee Member, you do not need to request community credentials. These are only for those not part of the Louisiana delegation who would like to attend President Obama’s acceptance speech on Thursday, September 6 — the final evening of the convention.

To request community credentials you must fill out this form for EACH PERSON wishing to receive credentials. We must have their current residential address and phone, as well as an email address (don’t fill out the form for them unless you have this information). Each person will then be contacted by our office to advise if they are awarded credentials along with details of where and when to pick these up in Charlotte.

NOTE: This does not sign anyone up for a hotel room. It only requests credentials to attend the last night of the convention as the President accepts the nomination for a second term.

If you receive tickets, you will be notified by our office THIS WEEK and be given instructions on how to pick up your credentials in Charlotte the week of the convention, September 3-6.

See you in Charlotte!
