New Mexico County Begins Issuing Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

Seal of Doña Ana County, New Mexico
In a press release issued this morning, Lynn Ellins, clerk of Doña Ana County, New Mexico, announced that his office will issues marriage licenses to same sex couples. It remains to be seen if the resulting marriages can or will be recognized by the state. State recognition is seemingly required for a marriage to be recognized by the federal government.
