Pbrower, I can tell you that both North Dakota and Arkansas will follow the Supreme Court.  Can give source if necessary.  So both can be white.

I am checking other states. That's how I got the news on Georgia and Texas.

Nebraska, too, recognizes Obergfell v. Hodges decisive.

Quote
Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts and Attorney General Doug Peterson said Friday that the State of Nebraska would follow the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling.

In a statement, Ricketts said: “The U.S. Supreme Court has spoken and ruled state same-sex marriage bans to be unconstitutional. While 70 percent of Nebraskans approved our amendment to our state constitution that defined marriage as only between a man and a woman, the highest court in the land has ruled states cannot place limits on marriage between same-sex couples. We will follow the law and respect the ruling outlined by the court.”

http://www.omaha.com/news/nebraska/douglas-lancaster-counties-begin-issuing-same-sex-marriage-licenses/article_74f43388-1ab6-11e5-987c

Likewise, South Dakota:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A U.S. Supreme Court opinion that declared same-sex marriage legal nationwide is effective in South Dakota immediately and it's up to each county in the state to begin issuing marriage licenses, the state attorney general said Friday.

Attorney General Marty Jackley said counties can begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples as soon as they are able, but acknowledged issues like the size of a county and the number applications could delay the process.

"We are saying it's effective immediately but with that recognition that we will work with local jurisdictions to provide a reasonable period of time to implement a fairly significant rule and change in law," Jackley said.

Colors for districts have no other political significance.

The US Supreme Court will likely smack down this official resistance. The Governor and the Attorney General seem to believe that Obergfell vs. Hodges does not apply to Louisiana.  That is why I am cautious about blanking states.

Nothing definitive yet on North Dakota.

Quote
Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said his office is not immediately enforcing the Supreme Court's decision to legalize gay marriage.

In a statement issued on the landmark ruling that was issued Friday (June 26) morning, Caldwell expressed disappointment in the 5-4 decision, saying it "overturns the will of the people of Louisiana."

"I am extremely disappointed by this decision. It fails to respect traditional marriage as defined by Louisiana voters, and is yet another example of the federal government intrusion into what should be a state issue," Caldwell said.

The statement says his office "has found nothing in today's decision that makes the Court's order effective immediately.

"Therefore, there is not yet a legal requirement for officials to issue marriage licenses or perform marriages for same-sex couples in Louisiana. The Attorney General's Office will be watching for the Court to issue a mandate or order making today's decision final and effective and will issue a statement when that occurs."

The Governor:

Quote
Less than two hours after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide, Gov. Bobby Jindal was citing the decision to try and raise money for his presidential campaign.

"Marriage is between a man and a woman was established by God, and no earthly court can alter that," Jindal's fundraising email said, just before a link to a page where people can donate money to Jindal's presidential campaign.

"The government should not force those who have sincerely held religious beliefs about marriage to participate in these ceremonies," Jindal said in the email letter, "I will never stop fighting for religious liberty. Will you join me?"

The first couple to receive a same-sex wedding license after the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay unions was married Friday by the same judge who struck down the ban in Arkansas last year.

Earnie Matheson, 65, and Tony Chiaro, 73, showed up at the Pulaski County Courthouse about an hour after the U.S. Supreme Court released its decision. They applied for and were granted a license at the clerk's office while reporters hovered around them and then embarked back into the rotunda to find someone to conduct the ceremony and wed them.

Nothing definitive yet on North Dakota.

Now there is.

Quote
Though no gay couples had stopped by her office as of 11 a.m. Friday, Burleigh County Recorder Debbie Kroshus said she would issue a marriage license to any who came in seeking one.

"The Supreme Court ruled," she said. "We're ready."

... The justices' 5-4 ruling on Friday means that North Dakota and a dozen other states with gay marriage bans will have to stop enforcing them.

Couples in Burleigh County will have to wait a few weeks, however, for Kroshus to perform their ceremonies. Her wedding appointment schedule is booked through July 9, she said.

Those with someone else in mind can get married any time.

"There's no waiting period in North Dakota," she said. "If they have someone to officiate the ceremony, they could get married today."

After the fact in Michigan...

With gay marriage legal in Michigan now voters want to take the next step and ban discrimination against LGBT people in employment and housing. 68% support a law making it illegal to fire or deny housing in Michigan because someone is gay, lesbian, or transgender to only 25% who are opposed. 56% of voters say they would 'strongly' support such legislation.

....

Voters are also quite opposed to two anti-gay GOP legislative efforts going on right now. Only
34% think adoption agencies that receive money from the state should be allowed to deny
services to families they say violate their religious  beliefs, with 52% saying they should not be
allowed to do that. Independents are particularly opposed to that legislation at 29/55.  

....

There's even less support for the proposal to make  it so that only clergy can perform weddings in the state, making it harder for same sex couples to get married. Only 16% of voters support that to 69% who are opposed and the opposition on that is bipartisan...

I wish that I could. But there is resistance in Texas (Hood County):

http://thescoopblog.dallasnews.com/2015/07/attorneys-to-sue-hood-county-if-clerk-doesnt-issue-marriage-license-to-same-sex-couple-today.html/

Louisiana:

Quote
Louisiana state government was forced to start recognizing same-sex marriages on Thursday following a U.S. District Court ruling.

This recognition has lead to the following changes at state agencies:

    Both people in a same-sex marriage can be listed on their children's birth certificates. Previously, two parents of the same sex not be listed on a child's birth certificate. In general, adoption by same-sex couples should be become easier now.
    The Department of Health and Hospitals will issue and process marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Court clerks in all parishes had agreed to do this earlier in the week.
    The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles will allow people in same-sex relationship to change their name to reflect their spouse's starting Monday. 
    The Department of Revenue will allow same-sex married couples to file their taxes jointly.

http://www.nola.com/politics/index.ssf/2015/07/louisiana_state_government_rec.html#incart_river

White out!

Quote
A group of Mississippi circuit clerks said they'll be issuing same-sex marriage licenses after meeting with Gov. Phil Bryant and a lawyer with the attorney general's office and receiving some "clarity."

And the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday lifted a stay that had caused confusion over whether Mississippi could begin allowing same-sex marriages.

http://www.clarionledger.com/story/news/politics/2015/07/01/guidance-clerks-issue-sex-licenses/29578875/

White out!

I expect the same for Texas, also in the Fifth Circuit, very soon.
