Priority Drawing Notices

If there are more applicants than licenses available in a county, a virtual drawing will be held. Applicants will be notified by mail after the priority application period of their ability to make formal application (ABC-211).

The Priority Drawing Slip, which is prepared at the time you filed your priority application, will be used in the drawing to establish your priority number.

The number drawn by any applicant shall indicate the priority position of his/her application, but shall not ensure the issuance of a license by the Department.

All 2021 priority drawings will be held on Zoom from ABC’s Headquarters in Sacramento or ABC’s Southern Division offices in Cerritos. No reservations are required to attend the virtual drawings. If you would like to attend the drawing in person, please contact the LicensingTrainingUnit@abc.ca.gov by October 21, 2021.  In the email request include the date and specific drawing details, including county and type of license for the drawing you would like to attend. If you have any questions or concerns and/or you require accommodation to view the drawings, please contact ABC’s Licensing Training Unit at LicensingTrainingUnit@abc.ca.gov.

Please be advised that in the event of Department technical issues that would adversely affect streaming of the virtual priority drawing, the drawing will be postponed.  The priority drawing will resume on the next business day at the same time. A new Zoom meeting access link will be posted on the ABC website.

A final list of the priority positions for each county will be posted in the district office and will be posted on our website on or after November 8, 2021.

Applicants will be notified of their position on the list, via mail, and successful applicants will be notified to file a formal application within ninety days.

Your formal application must be in the exact name(s) as stated on your priority application. Prior to license issuance, a priority applicant must present proof of a two-year right of tenancy for the premises for which the application is filed.
