Does your notary commission expire in January, February or March 2024?
Please note, if you are a notary whose commission expires in the first few months of the calendar year
(January, February, March), you should submit your application after the start of the new year. Applications approved prior to
January will result in the commission expiring one year earlier than anticipated.
Reminder for renewing notaries: there is an express renewal process through your notary management account. You will not have to print your application nor have it notarized. Your notary commission information is already on file.
