The State of Illinois is planning to allow same sex marriage next month, the Chicago Tribune reported on Wednesday.
The Illinois State Board of Elections (ISBO) will vote on the marriage license bill this week, according to a release from the board.
The vote will be held on June 6.
If approved, same-day marriage would become legal in Illinois in April 2019.
If Illinois passes a same-year marriage bill, same sex couples in the state would be able to wed on July 1, 2019, the release stated.
This means same-gender couples in Illinois would be legally married on May 10, 2020.
The decision to allow gay marriage in the Illinois state was taken by a majority of voters in December, the Tribune reported.
Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan announced the move on Wednesday after it was reported by The Associated Press.
In the past, the Illinois Supreme Court has allowed the state to enact laws that allow same gender couples to marry on the same day, which could have included weddings in Illinois’ capital city, Chicago.
However, the Supreme Court ruled in February that the state had to allow weddings to take place on the day of the state’s presidential primary.
Illinois has already legalized same- sex marriage in 2016.
