Secretary of State office to close for renovations.

PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — The Secretary of State office in Ludington will be closing for a week, beginning next Monday, due to a remodeling project, but customers can go online to ExpressSOS.com instead, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said.

The office, located at 5902 W. US 10, will not open on Monday, Feb. 26 and will resume normal service at 9 a.m. on Monday, March 5.

Renovations will include new data lines to speed transactions, electrical updates and new carpet. An additional work station will be built into the counter to assist with the busy tourist season and a self-service station will be installed in the lobby, which allows customers to renew their license plate tabs in less than two minutes.

“The features that this remodeling project will bring are part of our commitment to continuously improving and providing convenient customer service while being efficient with taxpayer dollars,” Johnson said. “Area residents now can do many transactions with us by hopping online at ExpressSOS.com but when they do need to visit, they can enjoy the benefits of an updated office in Ludington.”

The ExpressSOS website allows customers to renew their tabs and driver’s licenses, get a duplicate registration or title, change their address and register to be an organ donor. And with its Print ’N Go feature, customers can renew their driver’s licenses and tabs for their vehicles, motorcycles or boats, print their receipt and drive legally until they get their card or sticker in the mail. On their eighth year, customers do need to visit an office to get a new driver’s license so they can pass a vision test and get an updated photo.
