Frustration Over Ticket Process for Easter Egg Roll
By Timothy Wilson
The White House began distributing tickets online today to this year's Easter Egg Roll and some parents are finding the process just as frustrating as standing in line for hours.
In past years, people wanting to score tickets for the annual spring event would have to queue up for hours on the Ellipse, with the tickets issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
The online tickets are being released in batches at various, unscheduled times throughout the day, a White House official said. Some people have complained that they haven't been able to log on the the White House site or that when they log on, tickets aren't available.
Tracy Rotton, of Olney, Md., said she has tried to reserve tickets for her two children since 8 a.m., but has not been successful by 1 p.m.
"I was a bit dubious when I first heard about the White House's plans for offering the Easter Egg Roll tickets online," Rotton said in an e-mail early this afternoon. "And for much of the morning . . . I was being proved right."
