Drawing Applications

If applying for a permit, your first choice is required, second and third choices are optional. If you have only one choice do not repeat the choice as a second and third option.

  • Your second choice will only be considered if there is quota remaining after the all applicants with that district as a first choice have been filled, or the quota is unlimited and allows second choice applicants.
  • Your third choice will only be considered if there is quota remaining after the all applicants with that district as a first or second choice have been filled, or the quota is unlimited and allows third choice applicants.
  • Your best chance to use your second or third choice is if you choose a HD where the drawing odds are 100% or unlimited and allow second or third choices.
  • Nonresidents are limited to up to 10% of the permits available in any district.
