Grant County Clerk Robert Zamarripa said his Silver City office will begin Monday providing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
He said his office will comply with a district judge's ruling in a lawsuit brought by a lesbian couple.
In a separate case, the Los Alamos County clerk said she won't issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and will go to court to defend her decision.
Clerk Sharon Stover made the announcement in response to a judge's order last week that she grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Stover wants the lawsuit put on hold until the gay marriage issue is resolved by the state Supreme Court.
Luna County Clerk Andrea Rodriguez has said her office is not issuing same-sex marriage licenses at this time and they are awaiting a ruling from the courts.
Rodriguez and county clerks across New Mexico last week intervened in a lawsuit so they could file an appeal with the state Supreme Court to get the high court’s ruling.
