DENVER, CO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Barack Obama will give his acceptance speech in the mile high city on the last day of the Democratic National Convention on August 28. Tickets for this event are free for Colorado residents to attend the historic DNC speech at the Invesco Field in Denver. These resident tickets come to just over half the available seating in the stadium. The other half of the tickets will be allocated to State Party Campaigns for Change across the Nation.
"We are delighted to be able to open the doors of the convention to the public on this historic night," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is the 2008 convention chair, said in a statement. "There is a growing movement for positive change in Colorado, the West and across the country, and what better way to foster it than to have more Americans participate in the fourth night of the convention," according to the Denver Business Journal.
Coloradans who registered for tickets will be receiving their seats by lottery and will be notified via email or phone. There will also be a waiting list of alternates. According to The Denver Business Journal, no one with a free ticket should plan on making money off it. Community Credential officials have instigated a 'a very strong tracking program' and if they find a ticket for sale the barcode on that ticket will be deactivated. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
