Grand and Summit county clerks announce they will issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples

The two counties which voted against Amendment 3 back in 2004 have both announced they will issue licenses to same-sex couples in light of District Judge Robert Shelby’s ruling that the amendment and other anti-gay marriage laws are unconstitutional.

“We will open [Monday] at 8 a.m. and issue a marriage license to whoever applies according to the law,” said Summit County Clerk Kent Jones in an email to QSaltLake. “I don’t make the laws, but I do try always to follow them.”

In the Four-Corners region of the state, Grand County Attorney Andrew Fitzgerald told the Moab Times Independent today that he has authorized Grand County Clerk Diana Carroll to begin issuing marriage licenses to gay couples when the office opens Monday morning.
