State IT Innovation of the Year
In October 2019, the Colorado Digital ID was launched within myColorado — the state of Colorado’s official mobile app. To date, 40,000 Coloradans have downloaded the app and created their Digital IDs. The initial launch of the Digital ID enables residents to create a legal, electronic version of their Colorado driver license or state identification cards, and positions the state to quickly adopt mobile driver license standards once identified. This is just the beginning of the state’s digital identity program — through an executive order signed by Gov. Jared Polis, state agencies and Colorado businesses are authorized to accept the Digital ID as proof of identity, age and/or address.
