“Due to budget cuts and the overall lack of a state budget, the Secretary of State is no longer mailing out notices for license plate sticker renewals,” Reis said. “Instead, they are urging motorists to visit their website to sign up for e-mail notifications.”
Reis is encouraging motorists to visit www.ilsos.gov/greenmail to request their sticker renewal notice be emailed to them.
“The mailed notices were a convenient way to remind drivers they needed to renew their registration,” Reis said. “Without a state budget and with the cuts to the Secretary of State’s budget we just simply can’t afford the luxury of a mailed notice anymore. I’m encouraging everyone that can to sign up to receive an email notification to help avoid late charges or a potential issue if a driver is stopped by law enforcement and has an expired registration.”
Drivers are reminded that in order to sign up they will need their registration card, which has their registration ID number and PIN number. A valid email address is also required. For motorists that do not renew their vehicle sticker on time, a $20 additional fee will apply.
