Officials all over the state of California have been frantically issuing marriage licenses to gay couples in the past 2 days, since the Supreme Court lifted the ban on same-sex marriages. The number of marriages in the last couple of days has spiked to over 2,700, more than the average for an entire week in a typical June.

The L.A. Times reports, “among the most dramatic increases in business Tuesday were Ventura County, which with 798,000 residents saw more than 20 times the normal traffic—from two to 45—and Riverside County, population 2 million, which saw an increase from an average of nine applicants on a weekday in June to 133.” Stats for California Gay Marriages Trending: Older & Mild
