Dominican University of California Extends Lottery for Governor's Debate Tickets

Lottery ends at midnight September 23

Due to high demand and limited space, Dominican University of California is conducting a lottery for students and members of the community to attend the October 12 California Governor’s Debate at Angelico Hall. Tickets are free.

To enter the lottery, students and community members can go to the governor's debate website and complete and submit the entry form. The lottery opened on September 7 and the deadline to close it has been extended from September 17 to September 23. Lottery winners plus all entrants will be notified by e-mail on September 27.

Because of increased security in the live debate venue, lottery winners will be required to provide identification information prior to receiving tickets. Debate tickets must be obtained prior to the event to gain entry to the Dominican campus.

Dominican and NBC are hosting the debate between Democrat Jerry Brown and Republican Meg Whitman. The debate, moderated by NBC News’ Tom Brokaw, will be televised live beginning at 6:30 p.m. by NBC Bay Area, NBC Los Angeles, NBC San Diego, KCRA Sacramento, and KSBW Salinas/Monterey.

Ticket information also is available by calling 415-458-3732.
