DOWAGIAC – The Dowagiac Secretary of State office at 601 N. Front St. will close at the end of Tuesday, June 11, and move to a temporary location seven miles south while its current building is remodeled.

The project involves roof replacement and work on the building’s exterior and is expected to be completed in August.

During the relocation closure from June 12 to 14, customers are encouraged to complete their transactions online at ExpressSOS.com or visit another branch office.

The Dowagiac office will resume normal service at 9 a.m. Monday, June 17, at its temporary location in the administrative offices of Lewis Cass Intermediate School District, 61682 Dailey Road, Cassopolis.

Most license plate types can be ordered or renewed online at ExpressSOS.com. Driver’s license permits and registrations for vehicles, motorcycles, snowmobiles or boats may be printed, allowing motorists to drive legally until they get their renewed driver’s license or plate and tab in the mail. Additionally, customers may order a duplicate registration or title, change their address and register to be an organ donor on the website.
