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

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.
