A new service will remind Michiganders to renew their license plate tabs.
Those who sign up will be reminded a few weeks before their birthday via text message or e-mail. Secretary of State Ruth Johnson made the announcement yesterday. People who are interested in the service can visit michigan.gov/sos or text 'MSOS RENEW' to 468311. Residents will still get their 45-day prior renewal notice in the mail. In addition to tab reminders, customers can also sign up for alerts notifying them of upcoming elections.
