A new state policy makes it faster and easier for people to get a Michigan ID or driver’s license that matches their gender identity.
The rule is effective today.
Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson ordered the new rule. It says people will no longer have to show a new passport, an amended birth certificate, or a court order to change the designated gender on a state I-D.
“People who would like to correct their sex designations on their IDs will only need to complete a form, come into a branch office, and have their photo taken.”
