Record your marriage license in N.C.

As we continue to expand the WE DO Campaign, we are adding a new action. LGBT couples who are legally married are saying “We did!” by recording their marriage licenses at their local Register of Deeds Offices across North Carolina.

This action is a stand against Amendment One, an immoral and unjust measure that bans same-sex marriage. This action also creates a public record that legally-married same-sex couples do live all across North Carolina. Concurrently, unmarried LGBT couples are also taking action through the WE DO Campaign by applying for marriage licenses in their hometowns, seeking an elected official who will issue a license as an act of conscience.

If you and your partner would like to participate, please fill out this form below. Once you click “submit,” you will be taken to an instructions page.
