MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Several Minnesota counties will start accepting marriage license applications Thursday for same-sex couples.

Hennepin, Ramsey and Washington counties will start taking applications at 7:30 a.m. Thursday morning.

A marriage license obtained in one county is good anywhere in the state.

It comes less than a month after Gov. Mark Dayton signed a bill into law that made Minnesota the 12th state to allow same-sex marriages.

Couples will be able to get married when the law goes into effect on Aug. 1.
