Secretary of State offices will shift Wednesday hours to stay open until 7 p.m. beginning Nov. 3 to provide service to residents who cannot visit offices during traditional business hours.
“We continue to offer numerous convenient options for Michiganders to conduct their business with us, including expanded online transactions, self-service stations at grocery stores, and now evening office hours,” said Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson. “We are heeding the call for evening hours from community organizations and leaders and adding another way we’re making government work for the people.”
Visits during Wednesday evening hours on Nov. 3 are now available for booking at Michigan.gov/SOS. Wednesday hours will now be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. (10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central Time).
The department releases thousands of office visits twice per day, every business day for residents to book online at Michigan.gov/SOS or by calling 888-SOS-MICH. Residents can also walk up to any office and they will be served immediately if there is availability or assisted with scheduling a return visit at a time convenient for them.
