Democratic Party officials held a news conference Wednesday to describe how tickets will be distributed for Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the Denver Broncos' football stadium on Aug. 28.

Invesco Field holds 75,000 people and Democratic Party leaders predict they will more than fill those seats. Officials announced Wednesday half of those tickets will be reserved for Colorado residents.

Those wishing to attend can apply for a ticket by going to http://www.colorado.barackobama.com/invesco.

Party officials announced last month that Obama would accept the presidential nomination at the 76,000-seat Invesco Field at Mile High instead of the 21,000-seat Pepsi Center, where the rest of the convention will be held.

The convention starts August 25.
