Editorial: Get your Real ID driver’s license: October 2020 is coming. You don’t want to be stranded at the airport.

… October 1, 2020, may sound as distant as Jupiter, but do not be fooled or you may miss your flight. No, not to Jupiter. To Cleveland, or Phoenix, or any domestic destination.

Next October is the deadline to obtain a new form of driver’s license known as Real ID. Unless you visit the DMV before that date to apply for and receive a Real ID license, then starting Oct. 1 you will risk being barred from boarding an airplane or entering a federal facility such as a courthouse.
