On Tuesday, December 10, 2019, the Woodstock Town Board unanimously approved a resolution to provide municipal ID cards to all Woodstock residents who want them.

Municipal IDs are particularly useful to undocumented immigrants, homeless people, and others who may not have a driver’s license or other official ID. The Woodstock Town Board’s Human Rights Commission and Woodstock Immigration Support made the case for offering muni ID cards. Woodstock is the sixth Hudson Valley town to offer the cards, after Poughkeepsie, Middletown, Newburgh, Kingston, and Beacon (Spanish, English).
