Denver (AP) Coloradans who requested credentials to hear Barack Obama's acceptance speech as the democrats' nominee for president will start learning by e-mail, text message or phone today whether they're receiving them.

The Obama campaign says everyone receiving tickets for the speech August 28th -- the last day of the Democratic National Convention -- should be notified by 9 p.m. tomorrow.

Recipients will be asked to show photo IDS when picking up credentials this weekend.

More than 80,000 Coloradans requested credentials.

Convention officials have said roughly half the 75,000 seats for Obama's speech at Invesco Field at Mile High stadium will go to Coloradans, meaning thousands of people who requested tickets will be notified they're on a waiting list.
