MobileSecState EventWebJoin State Senator Julie Morrison and the Illinois Secretary of State's Office for a Mobile Secretary of State Event. The free event will offer area residents the chance to interact and obtain important Secretary of State services without having to travel to the nearest DMV location.

The Buffalo Grove Commission for Residents with Disabilities will have wallet cards available for people who have trouble communicating with first responders. There are no forms to fill out to obtain this. In addition, residents are encouraged to provide medical information and communication challenges that can be stored in driver’s licenses or state ID cards. The information is stored in the state’s Emergency Contact Database, accessible by law enforcement in the event of an emergency.

Bill Bogdan, Disability Liaison at the Illinois Secretary of State’s office, will be in attendance and presenting information at 11:00 a.m. on the various services provided by the Secretary of State’s office, including handicap parking rules, use of the Emergency Contact Database and more.

Morrison’s event will offer a range of services, including: Driver’s license renewals, state ID card renewals and replacements, state disability ID cards (doctor certification required), parking placards for persons with disabilities, vehicle sticker sales, collegiate license plates, passenger, B-truck and motorcycle license plates and organ and tissue donor registration.

State law allows driver’s license renewals up to one year in advance of expiration. Proper identification is required for new and duplicate driver’s licenses and state ID cards.

The Illinois Treasurer’s Office will also be in attendance offering information regarding ABLE accounts, which can allow people with special needs to save money without jeopardizing their disability benefits, and the iCash, unclaimed property recovery program.

The event is taking place on Friday, September 7 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the Buffalo Grove Village Hall, located at 50 Raupp Boulevard.
