This afternoon Minnesota will become the twelfth state to legalize gay marriage.
That's when Governor Mark Dayton is scheduled to sign the bill into law on the steps of the capitol.
Yesterday the Minnesota Senate voted 37 to 30 to make gay marriage legal.
Last week the House passed the bill by a 75 to 59 vote.
Weddings between same sex couples could begin on August 1.
