By January of 2009, at the latest, you’ll see new Missouri license plates on cars and trucks. And, Missouri drivers will have a chance to decide on the design that is chosen.
Revenue Director Trish Vincent says voting is as easy as going to the Department of Revenue ‘s web site to find the link to the voting page and choosing from one of three designs.
In 1995, a License Plate Advisory Committee was established to develop uniform designs and common colors for the plates and to meet with the public. Missouri’s current license plates were unveiled in 1996, as a result of that public process. In 2004, state legislators passed into law another required plate redesign. The License Plate Advisory Committee was created to develop designs for a new Missouri license plate. The committee selected three designs.
The Internet voting is now open and will be accessible until Monday, March 5. The announcement of Missouri’s new plate design will follow.
