WEST ORANGE, NJ — Beginning Friday, West Orange residents can apply for the new West Orange identification card, which will be available for all residents, including those without a government ID, according to a press release issued by the township.
The ID card costs $20 to process and is valid for three years. According to the township press release, requests will be processed Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the township clerk’s office located at 66 Main Street (town hall), Room 101.
The municipal ID card will display the resident’s full name, photo, home address, date of birth, gender, height, weight, eye color and signature.
The township also noted that all residents applying for the ID card must provide original documentation that includes a photo ID, date of birth and proof of residence within the township. Cards must be returned to the township if a resident moves.
For a list of required documentation or more information, call the municipal clerk’s office at 973-325-4155 or visit www.westorange.org/MunicipalID.
The measure to issue the cards was passed by the township council in September 2017.
