    I made a mistake on my carry permit application. I submitted it a few weeks ago and was looking at the copy last night when I noticed that I have omitted to indicate my race. This wasn't intentional, I just intended to ask the clerk if I should put 'white' or 'W' (or even 'caucasian'). It transpired that I forgot to ask and now that section is blank.

    You can have as much fun with this as you like, I already beat myself up over this.

    So, my question to you is this:
    Does anyone have experience of this?
    Should I expect them to deduce from my photo what color skin I have?
    Will they call me?
    Will they automatically reject my application and if so will I need to pay for a retry?

    So many questions, all for the sake of a 'W'...

    How about "N" for NASCAR. But I digress.

    I pulled a similarly stupid move with mine (TX). I forgot to sign one of the fingerprint cards. D'OH!

    No, they will not deduce your race from your photo. They cannot alter or amend your statements on the application in any way. In my case, they sent the card back to me with a little sticky attached to it asking me to sign and return the card. They couldn't process my application until they had the signed card, so it started all over again, but I did not have to pay the fee again. I was not rejected, I just wasn't processed. I would wager that they will do the same with your application.

    Az,

    This is Tennessee. Incompetent democrat/beaurocrat controlled government is what we have. If he is lucky, that is all they do. MY money says they reject it is 'incomplete', and he has to start all over, and re-pay that $115 fee. Then again, he may just get lucky, and they let it slide through. They are incompetent after all.

    I like to think I'm a member of the human race.

    I usually check "Other."

    Here in Georgia, the clerk typed an incorrect number in the zip code field on the actual permit. I only recently noticed. I wonder if I should say something to them? The incorrect number looks to be a "passable" number.

    It took six months to get the ccw permit.

    I made a mistake on my application. All I did was call the office of the Secretary of State and told them I had made a mistake on the application and they changed it right over the phone.

    I may have a solution now, thanks.

    After speaking to my wife I discovered we know people in the Department of Safety, we'll take this further tomorrow and see if I can't talk to someone in the right department and rectify the omission.

    Thanks all, especially SSTHitman for leading me to believe a phonecall might actually achieve something.

    UPDATE:

    After speaking to our friend in the department we learned that I made the one (and only) mistake on that form that will NOT prevent a permit being issued.
    Apparently, they can't demand that I disclose my race, they can ask that I disclose it but should I decline to provide that information they can't legally withhold the permit.
    I suppose it's one of those PC race relations scenarios, I'm just glad I haven't got to resubmit and/or pay twice.

    Also, we did ask if they would look at the photo and use that to determine my race/skin color. They do.

    Hope this information is helpful in anyway.
