How To Get Tickets to Obama's Election Night Party

Entry will be limited to people willing to volunteer for the presidential campaign.

Hoping to grab a ticket for the Obama election night party downtown? 

You're going to have to work for it. 

Attendance will be much more limited than the 2008 Grant Park gathering, where tens of thousands of then-presidential candidate Barack Obama supporters filled Chicago's downtown streets

About 10,000 people will be allowed into the Lakeside McCormick Place convention center Nov. 6, the Sun-Times reports. 

Only campaign volunteers willing to offer up their time toward the effort to get the president reelected will be given entry, according to the Chicago Tribune. 

Patch will be liveblogging and reporting all national, state and local election results. Check out all of Evanston Patch's political coverage.

Volunteers who worked three 3-hour shifts were eligible to receive a credential for tomorrow night's election watch. However, there is no guaranteed that every volunteer who works 9 hours will receive one.
