Ensuring the Integrity of the Sweepstakes Those individuals that qualify for the car are automatically and systematically (not manually) entered into the drawing as their pledges are processed. Participating public sector campaigns do provide individual donor information, which is audited, so public sector qualifiers can be assured they will be included and there is little room for human error. Companies, who do not typically provide individual pledge information or their corporate headquarters does not submit pledges within this timeframe, may submit a list of those employees who have qualified. Those names are added to the database of automatic qualifiers. Additionally, those people who submitted an entry outside of the automatic qualification process are also entered into the database.

The final list of names is then scrambled by the computer so they are not in alphabetical order and each name is assigned a random number. A person not employed with Sponsor chooses five numbers from the total assigned field of numbers and the potential winner of the drawing is the person blindly assigned by the computer to that number. Although Sponsor cannot publish the list of all those who qualify, if an Employee Campaign Manager requests a list of their company qualifiers, the Sponsor can provide it prior to the drawing, but after all pledges received by December 30, 2018 have been audited and processed.
