As Secretary of State Sam Reed, right, looks on, Gov. Chris Gregoire hands off one pen and reaches for another as she goes through a stack of them while signing Referendum 74, a citizen-passed measure that legalizes same-sex marriage in the state, Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012, in Olympia, Wash. Gregoire and Reed both signed the document at the ceremony, which allows gay couples to marry beginning Dec. 9. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
