Taos County will become the sixth county in New Mexico to issue same-gender marriage licenses, after 8th Judicial District Judge Jeff McElroy issued a Writ of Mandamus compelling the County Clerk’s Office to issue marriage licenses to same-gender couples who apply.
In a telephone interview, County Clerk Anna Martinez told TaosUnfiltered.com that her office will begin issuing licenses at 8 am Wednesday, August 28.
This follows the TaosUnfiltered.com scoop this morning that same-gender licenses would not be issued in Taos County. That story will be updated shortly.
TaosUnfiltered.com will be at the Taos County courthouse tomorrow morning with in-depth coverage of this developing story.
