How is this better/different from a State-issued ID from motor vehicles?

The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission State ID and driver’s license require that applicants complete a rigorous six-point documentation verification, that thousands of Madison residents simply cannot complete because they lack the required documentation. Therefore, the State issued ID is not available to many residents. The Madison ID card will also have a rigorous application process. Applicants must submit proof of identity and residency in Madison, and these documents will be authenticated using state of the art technology. It is critical to preserve the validity of the IDs while also protecting our residents’ privacy. However, the documents accepted to apply for a Madison ID are more flexible and accessible to the vast majority of residents.
