  • Texans Can Vote Online for New General-Issue License Plate

    AUSTIN - For the first time in the Lone Star state’s history, Texans can vote online for a new general-issue license plate.

    From noon Monday, February 4, until noon the following Monday, February 11, Texans can vote for one of four new license plate designs or to keep the current general-issue plate.

    All of the plates feature the state name on the top and “The Lone Star State” on the bottom. They are divided into four categories, a representation of how Texans see the state:

    * Traditional Texas. The plate features blue highlights with a gold Lone Star, and bold, red “TEXAS.”
    * Lone Star Texas. A white Lone Star stands out in the top, left-hand corner of the plate. Wide brushes of red and blue punctuate the Texas sky on the top half of the plate along with a low-lying mountain range on the bottom.
    * Natural Texas. The entire plate is covered with wildflowers.
    * New Texas. This red, white and blue plate features a composite of modern landmark buildings from several Texas cities.
    * My Texas. This is the current general-issue license plate that was introduced in 2000. It features icons of the state, including a horse, space shuttle, and oil derrick.

    All of the plate designs were created by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

    “We’re excited that the internet makes it possible for Texans to help choose the next general-issue license plate,” said Rebecca Davio, director of Vehicle Titles and Registration, the TxDOT division that oversees the manufacturing of the state’s license plates.

    Even if Texans choose the current plate design, they will see something new in early 2009 when the state changes to seven-character, alpha-numeric plate patterns.

    “By the end of this year, we will be out of license plate combinations for the three letters and three numbers that we currently put on the general-issue plate,” Davio said. “Because we need to change the plate, we thought it was the perfect time to invite Texans to participate in a design selection.”

    By law, the Texas Transportation Commission must give final approval to any new general-issue plate design. If Texans select the current plate design, no further action is needed by the commission.

                    Lone Star as well. Pretty nice looking.

                      Lone Star looks good!

                      I think Ole Yeller is due for a vanity plate

                          Where is the option for a plate that only comes in a rear mount version? That's what I want to see, so Mr. DPS doesn't have another excuse to give me an attitude during roadside chats.

                            Lone Star

                            Good point about the front plate. I know someone who just got a warning about a front plate. He got pulled in Dripping Springs.

                                  I voted Lone Star as well.

                                  From what I am seeing, this will be the new plate as it is 100,000 votes ahead.

                                    That can all change rather quickly. All you need is a script kiddie with too much time on his/her hand.

                                      True. Either way, I'm happy that we are finally getting 7 letters.

                                      It opens up the possibilities to many, many vanity plates.
