The application period for the Mt Whitney lottery for permits to climb Mt Whitney begins Feb 1 and ends March 15.

The Inyo National Forest web page with all their lottery information is here:

    Mount Whitney Lottery - Permit Reservations

Here is the link to enter the lottery on Recreation.gov

Yes. April 1 as well. April 1 for any unreserved dates -- generally only in May or October.

On May 1, reservations that were won in the lottery but not paid for become available at 7 AM.

When choosing alternate dates for the lottery we can also alternate between day and overnight, would choosing both types of permits on the same application make it invalid?

I'm sure it would not invalidate the permit or affect your chances. They work really hard at being completely neutral and random.
