Secretary of State offices to close for Memorial Day
MAY 14, 2012
Secretary of State Ruth Johnson reminds residents that all offices and the
Office of the Great Seal will be closed on Monday, May 28 in observance of
Memorial Day. Secretary of State SUPER!Centers normally offer Saturday hours but
will be closed on Saturday, May 26.
The Department of State mails notices to motorists 45 days before their
driver's license or license plates expire to give them ample time to renew.
Licenses and plates that expire on a day when state offices are closed, such as
a holiday or weekend, can be renewed the following day without penalty.
Most people renewing license plates, driver's licenses and ID cards can do
business online at
www.ExpressSOS.com or by mail. Easy to follow instructions can be found with
the renewal notice. Additional services can be done online as well.
License plate tabs can also be renewed at Self-Service Stations, many of
which are available around the clock. Visit the
Branch Office Locator
