The ruling, which found that Illinois' previous ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, applies only to Cook County — but the decision prompted some to hope that county clerks across the state will follow Cook County's lead.
In Kendall County, June 1 remains the first day same-sex couples will be able to wed.
"That's what we're going by," Clerk Debbie Gillette said Tuesday. "We were not ordered by the court to do that — the court order was only for Cook."
The same goes in other counties, including Kane, Will, Lake and McHenry, which are also sticking with the June 1 date. "No, right now, we're sticking with June 1, " Will County Clerk Nancy Schultz Voots said Tuesday.
"We're sworn to uphold the law. If the law says June 1, that's when we'll start. If the law gets changed and they say go earlier, then we'll go earlier," DuPage County Chief Deputy Clerk Paul Hinds told the Chicago Tribune.
