Another county clerk in New Mexico has joined the party. Equality on Trial reports:

Another county clerk in New Mexico has begun issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The county clerk of Santa Fe County, under an order from a federal judge, started issuing the marriage licenses, according to the Associated Press: The first couple to get a license in the state’s third-largest county was Santa Fe County Commissioner Liz Stefanics and Linda Siegle, a lobbyist for Equality New Mexico, a gay rights group. Stefanics is a former Democratic state senator from Santa Fe. The couple walked into County Clerk Geraldine Salazar’s office shortly after 1:30 p.m., and asked if they were still denying licenses to same-sex couples.

Fantastic – will Albuquerque and Taos follow suit? The state’s gonna have to take some action on this soon, one way or another.

The Santa Fe County Commission, with near unanimous support, approved a resolution Tuesday that supports both marriage equality in New Mexico and a recent decision by the Santa Fe county clerk to deny two men a marriage license – an action that’s made her the subject of a lawsuit. Commissioner Liz Stefanics said the resolution puts the County Commission “on the record as supporting same-sex marriage” and sends a message “that we wish the state Supreme Court to rule and make this matter clear for all the people here in our state.”

New Mexico has no law on the books specifically allowing or banning marriage equality.

New Mexico capital Santa Fe voted in favor of same-sex marriage last night (24 April). Over an hour of discussion, five city councilors voted for equal marriage, one voted against, and two abstained. While the passage of the resolution does not change the law, supporters are saying this is the first step towards marriage equality in the US state.

The move comes on the heels of the Mayor urging county clerks to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples last month.

The ACLU has also brought a lawsuit against the state to secure full marriage equality.
