Registering Made Easy

Published 6:44 am Saturday, June 2, 2012

(NAPSI)—For an increasing number of American men, technology is putting something they all have to do at their fingertips.

It’s now possible to register with the Selective Service System online with a smartphone or computer. Young men are required by law to register with the Selective Service System within 30 days of turning 18. They can submit their names as early as age 17 years and 3 months. By doing so they will be registered automatically on their 18th birthday. It’s easy to do in only a minute or so by logging on to and clicking on the registration icon.

If you prefer, you can visit any U.S. Postal Service branch to get a Selective Service “mail-back” registration form. In addition, most high schools have a Selective Service Registrar.
