MOUNT MORRIS, Mich. – The Secretary of State office in Mount Morris will close at the end of the month and move to a new location in Clio that features customer-friendly upgrades, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson announced today.
Customers and staff will benefit from improvements that include a larger lobby, public restrooms, drinking fountains, power assist entry doors, new counters, new paint and carpeting and 24-hour access to a Self-Service Station, which provides a convenient option for customers renewing their license plate tabs.
The office at 11960 Saginaw St. in Mount Morris will be closed as of Monday, Sept. 30, and will reopen at 9 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 7, at 4270 W. Vienna Road (M-57) in Clio, about 8 miles away. It is conveniently located one block east of I-75 in the Kmart Plaza.

"The features of this new office are part of our commitment to continuously improving and providing convenient customer service while being efficient with taxpayer dollars," Johnson said.
"Area residents can now do many transactions with us online at ExpressSOS.com but when they do visit, they can enjoy the benefits of this office."
People who need to renew license plates, driver's licenses and ID cards or change their address can do business online at www.ExpressSOS.com or by mail. Easy-to-follow instructions can be found with the renewal notice. Additional services can be done online as well.
