Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced recently that, as a result of the budget impasse, his office will suspend mailing out vehicle registration renewal reminders to the public.
In a press release making the announcement, White noted that suspending this service will save approximately $450,000 per month. It will allow his office to prolong the ability to mail vehicle registration renewal stickers, titles and license plates to vehicle owners for a few months longer before the postage account is depleted.
If you want to receive a reminder, sign up to receive electronic notices through the Secretary of State’s website. While those who receive emailed vehicle registration renewal notices via email will continue to have access to a pin number needed to renew their sticker online, those who do not sign up for the electronic alerts will now have to renew their vehicle stickers in person at a Secretary of State office.
