  • Thank You to Representative Sara Feigenholtz for the following reminders:
    Posted: 1/28/2016

    We would like to remind you that you may need to renew your license plate sticker. The Secretary of State's office no longer sends license plate sticker renewal notifications by mail.

    Representative Feigenholtz has co-sponsored legislation which would allow for a 30-day grace period to renew stickers without penalty or police citation. Currently, failing to renew your sticker could lead to a ticket, and late renewals can lead to fines on top of the charge for a new sticker.

    Information and guidance on renewing your license plate sticker can be found here. Additionally, you can register to receive future sticker renewal notifications via e-mail.

    We hope you are staying safe and warm in this bitter cold weather. Here are resources for you in case you lose heat, electricity, or need a place to warm up.

    If you have questions or want additional information, please contact our constituent services office at 773- 296-4141 or email sara@staterepsara.com.
