My best friend who I added as an alternate leader saw the email but he didn't understand that he had to create an account or verify anything (even though I relayed that to him). I got an email saying that your alternate didn't verify in the time required and he was removed as an alternate. My application is still good, but now only I can pick up the permit, if awarded one.
