IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING NOTARY APPLICATIONS AND RENEWALS

In December, 2018, the Governor signed Senate Bill 263, the Notary Public Modernization Act.  This Act removes the responsibility of the application, recording, renewal and discipline of Notary Commissions from the Common Pleas Courts and places it with the Ohio Secretary of State.

The Act repeals the authority of the Common Pleas Courts to accept and process notary public applications as of September 19, 2019.  Therefore, the Clerk of Courts office has set August 16, 2019 as the Final Testing Date in our office.

After August 16, 2019, applicants may apply with the Ohio Secretary of State to become a Notary Public on or after September 20, 2019.

You can go to the Ohio Secretary of State’s website @ https://www.sos.state.oh.us/notary/ for further information.
