Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum has already begun officiating marriages of gay couples in light of the Supreme Court ruling this morning (June 26). She sent out a statement saying her office will stay open as late as it has to today to take care of couples who want to be wed immediately:

"Same-sex couples and their families have waited long enough and I cannot imagine forcing them to wait a moment longer. Thanks to my dedicated staff, the County Clerk's Office will remain open today until all loving couples, residing in Ingham County, have a chance to say 'I do.'"

Michigan has a three-day waiting period for marriage licenses, but Byrum says she will waive it. Application fee for a marriage license is $20 and the waiver fee is $50.
