Coloradans on the waiting list to hear Barack Obama's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention could learn this week whether they're getting tickets.

Those who requested and were awarded tickets were supposed to pick them up by last night at Obama campaign offices around the state.

They need to follow directions to activate them before the end of Tuesday, or the tickets will be re-awarded to people on the waiting list.

More than 80,000 Coloradans requested credentials for the speech August 28th at Invesco Field at Mile High.

Convention organizers say Coloradans are getting about half the 75,000 or so available seats.
