MassDOT’s Registry of Motor Vehicles Division is now accepting applications for the 2013 Low Number License Plate Lottery. The annual drawing gives drivers a chance to win a plate from a low number cache that the Registry is able to make available each year.
“We expect to receive hundreds of applications leading up to the annual lottery,” said Registrar of Motor Vehicles Rachel Kaprielian. “We see interest and fascination from customers year after year. Some are trying to win a lucky number or letter combination, others are looking for an easy to remember plate, and still other applicants want to be part of the historical novelty that comes with a low number plate.”
Applicants in this year's drawing will be vying for 140 of the most coveted Massachusetts license plates, including plate numbers: Z7, 740, and 6868.
The application is available for download at MassRMV.com and customers may also visit any RMV branch to obtain an application. Applications will be accepted by mail only and must be postmarked by August 12, 2013. Only one entry per applicant. Postcard entries will not be accepted. Winners who do not register their vehicle with their winning lottery plate by December 31, 2013 will automatically forfeit their plate. All forfeited plates will be offered to a list of 25 alternate winners who will be chosen at the drawing.
The lottery drawing will be broadcast live on NightSide with Dan Rea on WBZ 1030AM on Thursday, September 12, 2013 from 8-10p.m.
