Wallace says residents should sign up for license renewal emails

Staff Report

Democratic State Rep. Litesa Wallace encouraged residents to sign up to email notices for the vehicle registration renewal.

“People have so much to worry about in their daily lives, and this reminder is one less thing they should be concerned with,” Wallace said in a statement. “It is unfortunate that due to the governor’s unwillingness to work on a budget that individuals are at greater risk of being fined. I hope residents spread the word and take advantage of the email option so that they can avoid a possible fine and have peace of mind.”

Secretary of State Jesse White’s office last month said that mail notices for renewals would cease while the state budget impasse continues. White said that the move would save around $450,000 per month, extending the time his office can continue to mail renewal stickers, titles and license plates.

Drivers can visit ilsos.gov/greenmail to sign up for paperless renewal notices. Residents will need to have current registration on hand to input the required ID and PIN numbers necessary for email registration.

If drivers do not have their current card, or have any further questions about the process, they may contact the Secretary of State’s Public Inquiry Division at 800-252-8980.

“As I continue to find ways to address the budget issue in a responsible and bi-partisan manner, I encourage residents to sign up for this alert in the meantime,” Wallace said. “I hope that they review their registration and ensure that they are up to date so that they may stay on the road.”
