MassDOT today announced that the Registry of Motor Vehicles Division is now accepting applications for the 2012 Low Number License Plate Lottery.
“The Registry expects to receive thousands of applications for this year’s annual lottery,” said Registrar of Motor Vehicles Rachel Kaprielian. “The passion for low number plates we see from our customers and lottery entrants makes this a fun tradition.”
Applicants in this year's drawing will be vying for 124 of the most sought after Massachusetts license plates, including plate numbers 73, 295, 449, 493, 7755, and 1Z.
“Registrar Kaprielian works tirelessly to remind customers of the transactions available at the RMV’s online branch,” said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Richard A. Davey. “I encourage customers to take this opportunity to log onto the website, learn about the transactions that can be performed online and to complete a lottery application.”
In addition to the application being available at mass.gov/RMV, customers may visit any branch to obtain an application. All entries must be mailed and postmarked by August 13, 2012.
The date, time and location of the September drawing will be announced on the Registry's website and will occur prior to September 15, 2012.
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, 2012 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.
