member who is authorized to verify your identity by looking at your photo
ID, and then that person will input the verification into their system

If you use the option of ordering the permits by mail, you don't have to go
identify yourself to a USDA office.  You just send in the form and they mail
you the permits.  It's not a huge hassle.

For some reason I don't understand, the website encourages you to use online
registration for the permit, even though it's a lot more complicated for
everyone involved.
