In Olympia, the state capital, the Thurston County Auditor's Office planned to open at midnight to grant marriage licenses to the 15 same-sex couples who entered a lottery to be served first. The office will reopen at 7 a.m. to serve others.

"It's exciting," said Thurston County Auditor Kim Wyman, a Republican. "This is a moment people will look back at years from now. I think it's important to acknowledge and celebrate it."

Lisa Brodoff and Lynn Grotsky will be the first same-sex couple in Thurston County - and perhaps the state - to receive a marriage license.
