I asked State Representative Jamie Pedersen this question the other day and since he's planning on (re)marrying his husband once R-74 takes effect, he knew all the details.
The state's new homo-including marriage law will go into effect on Dec. 5, after the 30-day waiting period for voter-approved measures like this one expires.
People will be able to apply for marriage licenses the next day, Dec. 6.
But, since there's a three-day waiting period for getting married in this state, the first day gay marriages could be performed is Dec. 9.
