A new ID option for Washtenaw residents

On June 1st, the Washtenaw ID became available for county residents. The ID shares information similar to a driver’s license, but is used expressly to validate identification and prove residency within the county.

The WHI published a story about the ID program, saying that The Washtenaw ID Project “would like to ensure the ID is accepted at institutions that meet basic human needs within the county, including health centers for low-income folks, emergency departments, credit unions, preschools and daycares, libraries, and locally-owned pharmacies.”
