One of the questions we receive often when educating the community on organ, eye and tissue donation is how people can sign up to be organ, eye and tissue donors after death. While most people sign up to be organ, eye and tissue donors when obtaining or renewing their state ID or driver license at their local DMV, there are other ways in which you can sign up to be a donor.
If you don’t have access to a driver license or state ID or simply forgot to say Yes to donation during your last visit to the DMV, you can still sign up anytime without having to make an extra trip to your local DMV office. Keep reading to learn the many ways you can register your decision to be an organ, eye and tissue donor.
