The Youth Inaugural Ball, to be held at the Washington Hilton, is reserved for Americans between 18 and 35; tickets will cost $75, half the cost of tickets to the other balls.

There will also be regional balls – the Eastern ball, for example, is for Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Puerto Rico – and home state inaugural balls for the president and vice president-elect. (Mr. Obama's will include Illinois and Hawaii; Mr. Biden's, Delaware and Pennsylvania.)
