Gov. Jared Polis Reveals New Look For Colorado Driver License, ID Cards

DENVER (CBS4)- On Monday afternoon, Gov. Jared Polis revealed the new look for the Colorado driver license and ID card. The new cards were initially scheduled to be revealed last fall but that was delayed.

The winners in the Iconic Colorado driver's license contest were announced last spring. They were selected out of 100 finalists with more than 400 entries submitted in the contest.

"It's really a key part of our brand and identity as a state there's really no other piece of Colorado that Coloradans are accustomed to carrying around with them wherever they go," said Polis.
