Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginians who want to be on hand for the swearing-in of President-Elect Barack Obama in Washington, D.C., can get tickets from only one source: The State's Congressional Delegation.

The State's U.S. Senate and House members will distribute the free tickets for the Jan. 20 Inauguration Ceremonies.

Their offices will receive the passes about a week before the event, but they must be picked up in person.

Officials organizing the swearing-in warn that no web site or other outlet will have tickets, or can offer them for sale.

There will be 240,000 free tickets handed out but there will only be 30,000 seats.

Current and former members of congress automatically get tickets, as do the U.S. Supreme Court Justices and Medal of Honor winners.
