BOSTON (AP) — The
Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles has launched its annual low-number license plate lottery.
Staring Monday, the Registry will begin accepting applications for 124 low-number plates, including 73, 295, 449, 493 and 1Z.
Registrar Rachel Kaprielian says the agency expects thousands of applications for the plates, considered a mark of prestige by some.
Applications are available at all Registry branches
and online. Entries must be mailed and postmarked by Aug. 13. Postcard entries will not be accepted. Only one entry per applicant will be accepted.
The final drawing is yet to be determined but will be conducted before Sept. 15.
The Registry started the lottery several years ago in response to criticism that low-number plates only went to the politically connected.
