Seattle City Hall will open for a special event on the Sunday following a new law taking effect, which will allow same-sex couples to marry in the state of Washington.
Mayor Mike McGinn, said through spokesperson, Aaron Pickus, that eight municipal judges will donate their time on Sunday 9 December, three days after Referendum 74 becomes active, allowing equal marriage in the state, reports the Associated Press.
The judges will be available between 12-5pm on Sunday 9 December, the first day it is possible for couples to have their marriage licenses signed, despite being allowed to collect them from 6 December.
