Online Tickets to McCain/Palin Rally
Vanity | October 16, 2008 | Shawn Hines

Has anyone RSVP'd tickets to a McCain/Palin rally online via McCain's official campaign website? I did so today for a rally that I will be driving 5 hours to attend tomorrow morning. I haven't received any confirmation or anything and am starting to get worried.

I think tickets are required to attend the event, but the website clearly offers the choice of RSVPing online. I submitted my reservation on the website and a message screen appeared which stated something like "Thanks for signing up for the rally." It was a generic automatic response message.

So, has anyone previously done this online? If so, did you have to check in once at the rally? Did they even check for a ticket? Any advice?

I went to see W in 2000 and it was said "tickets are required." Once I got there, they never checked any ticket.

I wouldn't be so worried if I wasn't going to drive 5 hours in the middle of the night to see Sarah.

Thanks in advance.

If you’re talking about a rally in NC, someone posted earlier today that they had “a stack” of tickets if anyone wanted one. Maybe search keywords and titles for “tickets” and find that guy.

I went to two outdoor events and got tickets from people at the gate. If its an indoor event with limited seating you might run into problems. The RSVP online doesn't guarantee you getting in.

I had to RSVP online for Sarah Palin tickets when she came here to Carson , California. I started getting worried also and fired off three or four e-mails stating I hadn’t recieved my tickets yet. The next day I got them. If you think it is getting too close and still haven’t heard anything I would make a phone call into your Mccaain/Palin headquarters and ask what you should do. Hope this helps.

Which rally is it? I have information about her appearance at Verizon Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana. For the Indiana rally, even if somebody RSVP'd online, they still had to appear in person at a ticket distribution site to pick up tickets. The tickets were distributed on a first-come basis, so the RSVP didn't guarantee much. I think in this case it's because the local campaign didn't have access to a list of online registrants. There wasn't a lot of established protocol b/c, frankly, nobody ever comes to Indiana.

Verizon is the kind of venue for which I would expect you'd need a ticket because space is limited.

If you need tickets for the Indiana rally, I have a pair I will give you. They're general admission, which means you're out on the lawn, but you'll be there. Private reply to me.

I did it in VA and printed them right on line.

Are you coming to Melbourne FL tomorrow?

When I signed up online for a Sarah rally in NH, the “Thanks for signing up” Web page included a link to download a PDF of the ticket that you could print yourself.

They never checked for tickets at the rally...
