Lottery to decide who gets tickets for State of the State address

Gov. John R. Kasich is inviting Ohioans interested in attending the State of the State address Feb. 24 at the Medina Performing Arts Center to submit their names online to be eligible for a random ticket drawing.

Ohioans seeking tickets can sign up at governor.ohio.gov/tickets until 6 p.m. Feb. 18 and request a maximum of two tickets. Winners of the lottery will be notified via email by noon Feb. 19.

This is the third year that tickets have been made available to the public via a lottery.

Since coming into office, Kasich has broken with the tradition of delivering State of the State addresses at the Statehouse in Columbus. After his first address there in 2011, Kasich has delivered the address at Wells Academy, a public elementary school in Steubenville, and the Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center in Lima.
