The lottery preparations start the night before with Mr. Graves making the paper slips and the list of all the families. Once the slips are finished, they are put into a black box, which is stored overnight in a safe place at the coal company. The story briefly mentions how the ballot box has been stored over the years in various places in the town, including a grocery store shelf, a barn, and in the post office basement. On the morning of the lottery, the townspeople gather close to 10 a. First, the heads of the extended families draw slips until every family has a slip. Bill Hutchinson gets the one slip with a black spot, meaning that his family has been chosen. The final round is for the individual family members within the winning household to draw, no matter their age. Bill’s wife, Tessie, gets the marked slip. After the drawing is over and Tessie is picked, the slips are allowed to fly off into the wind.
