Just in case anyone is wondering, here's the draft and lottery procedures:
"Mobilization (draft) procedures
1.Congress and the President authorize a draft: The president claims a crisis has occurred which requires more troops than the volunteer military can
supply. Congress passes and the President signs legislation which revises the Military Selective Service Act to initiate a draft for military
2.The Lottery: A lottery based on birthdays determines the order in which registered men are called up by Selective Service. The first to be called,
in a sequence determined by the lottery, will be men whose 20th birthday falls during the calendar year the induction takes place, followed, if
needed, by those aged 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 19 and 18 year olds (in that order).
3.All parts of the Selective Service System are activated: The Agency activates and orders its State Directors and Reserve Force Officers to report
4.Physical, mental and moral evaluation of registrants: Registrants with low lottery numbers receive examination orders and are ordered to report for
a physical, mental, and moral evaluation at a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) to determine whether they are fit for military service. Once
he is notified of the results of the evaluation, a registrant will be given 10 days to file a claim for exemption, postponement, or deferment.
5.Local and appeal boards activated and induction notices sent: Local and Appeal Boards will begin processing registrant claims/appeals. Those who
passed the military evaluation will receive induction orders. An inductee will have 10 days to report to a local Military Entrance Processing Station
6.First draftees are inducted: According to current plans, Selective Service must deliver the first inductees to the military within 193 days from the
onset of a crisis.
 Lottery procedures
If the agency were to mobilize and conduct a draft, a lottery would be held in full view of the public. This would be covered by the media. First, all
days of the year are placed into a capsule at random. Second, the numbers 1–365 (1–366 for lotteries held with respect to a leap year) are placed
into a second capsule. These two capsules are certified for procedure, sealed in a drum, and stored.
In the event of a draft, the drums are taken out of storage and inspected to make sure they have not been tampered with. The lottery then takes place,
and each date is paired with a number at random. For example, if January 16 is picked from the "date" capsule and the number 59 picked from the
"number" capsule, all men of age 20 born on January 16 will be the 59th group to receive induction notices. This process continues until all dates
are matched with a number.
Should all dates be used, the Selective Service will then conscript men at the age of 21, then 22, 23, 24, and 25. Men ages 18 and 19 are not likely
to be inducted to the system. Once all dates are paired, the dates will be sent to Selective Service System's Data Management Center."
