Maine’s Rapid Renewal Service Welcomes 250th Municipal Participant
The Maine Department of the Secretary of State, in partnership with InforME, celebrated the town of Thomaston becoming the 250th municipality to launch Rapid Renewal, Maine’s online vehicle registration renewal service.
Rapid Renewal is an e-commerce service allowing citizens to conduct business with municipal government and state government in one seamless online transaction. Since its launch in December 2000, the service has processed more than 1.7 million renewal transactions for residents from across the state of Maine. Through Rapid Renewal, citizens can quickly and easily renew their vehicle registrations and pay their municipal excise taxes online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
"Residents have asked about Rapid Renewal in the past,” said Kara George, Town Clerk. “I am excited to expand our service offerings with InforME and be able to offer this convenient method to renew vehicle registrations to residents.”
Rapid Renewal may be accessed through www.sosonline.org, the Secretary of State’s site for online services. Residents of the municipalities that offer Rapid Renewal can continue to visit the town office to pay in person, but also have the option of conducting these transactions online. Municipal officials who would like more information about participating in Rapid Renewal are encouraged to contact the Department of the Secretary of State at 626-8400 or by email at email@example.com.
