    NOVEMBER 2, 2005

    Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land announced today that all branch offices and the Office of the Great Seal will be closed in observance of the Veterans Day and Thanksgiving holidays.

    The offices will be closed:

    • Friday, Nov. 11 for Veterans Day
    • Thursday, Nov. 24, Friday, Nov. 25 and Saturday, Nov. 26 for Thanksgiving.

    Secretary of State SUPER!Centers normally offer Saturday hours but will close on Nov. 26.

    The Secretary of State's Office mails notices to motorists 45 days before their driver's license or license plates expire to give them ample time to renew. Licenses and plates that expire on a day when state offices are closed, such as a holiday or weekend, can be renewed the following day without penalty.

    Motorists can "skip the trip" to the branch office by renewing license plates by mail, or if eligible, by Internet or touch-tone telephone. Easy to follow instructions can be found with the renewal notice. License plate tabs will arrive by mail within seven business days.

    Branch offices are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Wednesdays the majority of offices are open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. with those in city centers open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Smaller branch offices may close during the lunch hour. PLUS offices and SUPER!Centers are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, with SUPER!Centers also providing Saturday hours from 9 a.m. to noon.
