AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap says the Rapid Renewal service that enables Mainers to register vehicles online has now grown to 167 municipalities, with more than 800,000 transactions processed to date.
The latest town to offer the optional service is Gilead in western Maine. Rapid Renewal is offered by cities and towns from York County to Aroostook County, with populations ranging from Glenwood Plantation's two citizens to more than 64,000 in Portland.
Through Rapid Renewal, citizens are able to quickly and easily renew their vehicle registrations and pay their municipal excise taxes online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Rapid Renewal may be accessed through the secretary of state's website for online services.
