City of Madison asks for feedback on proposed ID program
City launches online survey on municipal IDs
MADISON, Wis. — The city of Madison is looking for feedback on its proposed municipal ID program.
The program would offer IDs for residents who don’t have the resources for a driver’s license or state ID. They can’t be used for voting but would help folks get access to services like libraries, local pharmacies and banks.
Madison is studying other cities with similar programs. Milwaukee’s municipal ID program cost the city about $40,000, according to Madison City Clerk Maribeth Witzel-Behl. In the program’s first year, around 4,000 IDs were issued at $10 per card.
Madison is asking residents to weigh in on the idea with a survey. Fill it out here .
