Mapping same-sex marriage licenses in Pa.

    Same-sex couples from all over Pennsylvania are heading to Montgomery County to get their marriage licenses.

    [UPDATE] As of August 8, the total number of licenses issued has risen to 98, with 28 for Philadelphia residents.

    In spite of the lawsuit against the county’s Register of Wills, D. Bruce Hanes, licenses are continuing to be issued in Montgomery County to same-sex couples. Since they began on July 24, the county has issued 82 same-sex licenses, according to Frank Custer, the director of communications for the Montgomery County Commissioner’s Office.

    Although the majority of couples who have been issued licenses are from Montgomery County or the surrounding area, many couples have traveled from all over Pennsylvania, including three couples who came from Pittsburgh and one from Tobyhanna.

    Twenty-one licenses have been issued to residents of Philadelphia, which, so far, is the most of any city or town in the state.

    Check out the locations of all the licenses in the map below. Red markers indicate licenses issued in July and blue markers licenses issued in August. NOTE: No actual addresses are available in the map.
