Email News Alerts

Same-sex couples are now able to fill out applications for marriage licenses in Otter Tail County.

A representative from the county recorder’s office said the applications became available earlier this month, but no same-sex couples had applied as of Monday.


Couples will need to wait until August 1 to pick up their official license, the date when same-sex marriage becomes legal in Minnesota.
