  1. I have tried to check to see if they elected. Something weird going on, first the page where to check still says "The U.S. Department of State Electronic Diversity Visa Entrant Status Check for Diversity Visa Program for DV- 2013 is available until September 30, 2013. The Entrant Status Check for (DV -2012) applicants will remain open until September 30, 2012.""It is Oct 22 around 5:30 pm. According to that,this page should not be there. Then when I checked it says "Based on the information provided, the Entry HAS NOT BEEN SELECTED for further processing for the Electronic Diversity Visa program at this time. More entries will be selected in early October 2012, so please keep your confirmation information until at least that time."" Well it is October 22 already!! Is these programers are being paid or what?Or too lazy to change couple of pages?
