How to Find Out My Local Selective Service Board Number

Save

The director of Selective Service appoints a group of five citizen volunteers, known as the Local Board, to determine which registrants in their community receive military service exemption, deferment or postponement during a draft. If you registered with the Selective Service and want to know your Local Board’s number, you can obtain it if you were born before 1960. The Selective Service System states on its website that this information is not available for men born during 1960 or later because of the draft ending before these individuals reached draft age.
