Utah Launches Digital Application For Marriage Licenses

Utah County officials have announced residents getting married in the state can now get their marriage licenses online. KUTV-TV reported Thursday that the state auditor’s office launched the digital application on its website. Most states require the couple to appear in person, fill out paperwork and present identification, a process some clerks have called labor-intensive. Officials say the online process takes about 10 minutes and requires both people to use one device to fill out a form and take pictures of themselves and their IDs so the system can verify identities. Officials say the couple is then emailed a PDF version of the marriage license.
