Two New Secretary of State Mobile Offices Announced for Central and Western Michigan

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson has announced that she is launching two new mobile offices in central and western Michigan.

The announcement was made by Benson Wednesday at the Pope Francis Center in Detroit. The center was the first mobile office she launched, and it served Michiganders experiencing homelessness.

For several months, the mobile office partnered with community organizations in southeast Michigan to serve senior centers, foster care facilities and other communities.

The newest offices, which are currently being built and are expected to be finished by the end of the summer, will operate similarly and will serve rural areas where Michiganders may have trouble connecting to the internet. They will operate out of lobbies and shared spaces of community organizations and offer almost all Secretary of State transactions except for testing.

Visitors can apply for and renew their driver’s licenses and state ID’s, update their addresses, register to vote and transfer car titles.

“We’ve doubled the number of services available online, installed self-service stations at grocery stores across the state, and will soon bring services directly to the doors of people in Central and Western Michigan who face the most barriers and need the most assistance,” said Benson.
