Magistrates Will Not Perform Marriages During DNC

The Mecklenburg County Register of Deeds will issue marriage licenses September 4 through September 7, however, magistrates will not perform marriages at either of their locations during the Democratic National Convention.

Magistrates normally perform marriage ceremonies at the Mecklenburg County Courthouse at 832 East 4th Street and Jail Central 801 East 4th Street. Some Magistrates will be temporarily assigned to Jail North during the DNC, but they will not perform marriages either.

Couples should make arrangements with a minister, pastor, rabbi or other persons authorized by the Federal or State government to perform a marriage, or seek out magistrates in other cities such as Statesville, Gastonia or Monroe. The license is good for marriage in any county.
