Workers build the center camera stand last month in preparation for the inauguration on the West Front of the Capitol.
Though the inauguration is supposed to take place on Jan. 20, this year that date falls on a Sunday, so the ceremony will occur on Monday, Jan. 21. It will be only the seventh time in history that the mandated inauguration date has fallen on a Sunday and the second time the event will coincide with Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Vice President Joe Biden waits to conduct a mock swearing-in ceremony with Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, in the Capitol's Old Senate Chamber, December 2, 2014. Schatz was sworn in to serve the remainder of his term since he was appointed to the seat after Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, passed away.
