Updated: Feb 17

Oath of Office for Federal Officers


Dominant hand open, facing down, placed on a complete copy of the U.S. Constitution at stomach level without fully extending the arm, with the Constitution held by a loved one with both hands under it. Subordinate hand open and raised with the elbow tucked to their ribs.


For Congressors:


"I do solemnly swear and affirm that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: so help me my fellow Americans."


For Presidents:


"I do solemnly swear and affirm that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America: so help me my fellow Americans."


For Vice Presidents:


"I do solemnly swear and affirm that I will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: so help me my fellow Americans."


For Justices:

"I, [NAME], do solemnly swear and affirm that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as justice under the Constitution and laws of the United States.


Pledge of Allegiance


Standing or in a wheelchair with right hand over the heart for those not in uniform and those in uniform will salute.


"I pledge allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America and to the republic for which we defend, one Union, indivisible; with prosperity, security, and liberty for all."
