Massachusetts registry holds annual low number plate lottery

Weird News

BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles is holding its annual lottery for much sought-after low number vehicle license plates.

Entries are being accepted online until Aug. 23. Mailed entries must be postmarked by that date.

The winners will be announced Sept. 15.

Only one entry per applicant will be accepted, and applicants must be a Massachusetts resident with a currently active, registered, and insured passenger vehicle. People with suspended or revoked registrations or licenses are not eligible.

Applicants are not allowed to request specific numbers.

Among the numbers available in this year’s lottery are B1, 3000, 27A and K5.

For years, low number plates were handed out to the politically connected until the lottery system was put into place.
