Regulations and Laws on Military Draft Registration (Selective Service) by State

Driver’s License Linked to Registration? Passed legislation but never implemented because it was conditioned on the receipt of special federal funding.

Registration Linked to Access to Higher Education? No.

Registration Required for State Employment? No.

The Maryland legislature passed SB 297 in 2002. This bill created Maryland Statute Transportation Section 12-304, which states that a male applicant under the age of 26 may submit registration information to the SSS while applying for a driver’s license or other identification card. The individual must select whether or not he would like his information forwarded and refusal to consent will not be reason to deny a license. However, this law is contingent on federal funding to implement it, and as of 2013, no federal funding was provided so this law has not taken effect.
