Northfield Municipal ID

Northfield was the first city in the state of Minnesota to have a municipal ID program. Municipal ID programs provide another form of identification for people who may be unable to obtain forms of photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport. The more people who utilize this program, the more normalized it becomes in our community!
