Jesse White encourages vehicle owners to observe Earth Day by receiving online notices

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White is encouraging vehicle owners to observe Earth Day by going paperless and visiting to sign up for email reminder notices for license plate sticker renewals. The initiative reduces the use of paper and saves state $1.4 million annually

“This is an environmentally friendly initiative for customers that encourages online transactions with my office,” said White. “Those who sign up for this service will also save the state money by eliminating the need to print and mail annual post card reminder notices.”

The one-time registration process allows vehicle owners to receive a series of three email notices per vehicle each year highlighting the upcoming vehicle expiration date. The emails also contain the vehicle owner’s registration ID and PIN, simplifying the process of renewing license plate stickers online each year.
