If you're a U.S. resident, Kraken will not tell you whether they operate in the State you live in.  You just have to go ahead and attempt to register; if they don't have licensure in your State, you're S.O.L.
Therefore, dear readers:
A) If you are registered with Kraken in the United States, please make a post in this thread and tell us what State you live in.
B) Others, who have been unable to register with Kraken because Kraken doesn't have licensure in your State, please post that information too.

Now, let's maintain lists of the States Kraken does and does not operate in, and keep them updated.

I'm based overseas (SE Asia) but have residency in:

Washington state  - Kraken not available yet but I'm "pre-approved" for Tier 3.

I think CA and NY reside in the "no" column too.
Here's some links to check out on the subject of money transmitter licenses

State-specific info welcome.
Edit:  are there any Vermonters?

from a three-month-old reddit post
"The one state confirmed to already be supported is South Carolina. They suggest that U.S. users who really want to trade USD register an LLC in south carolina, and sign up under the LLC."
from:  http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1rztum/release_the_kraken_part_2/
Which kind of indicates that as of December the vast majority of U.S. residents still could not do any exchanging in and out of fiat.
This link
http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/19324/what-states-is-kraken-doing-business-in
shows Kraken is a registered MSB in every State, but that's not the same as being licensed.
So it looks like a slow road for Kraken and its U.S. customers.

I have some news to report.
Somebody I know who lives in New Mexico just registered on Kraken today.
After registering the account, Kraken is giving her the option of verifying at the higher tier levels.
I think I can say that Kraken serves New Mexico.

Residents of SC, MT, MA, AL, and NM can send in euro deposits.  Not sure if USD is now accepted after their recent partnership with PayCash.
