Secretary of State Ritchie announces Notary Public commission renewal period changed to Aug. 1

St. Paul, MN — Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie today (Wednesday, July 6) reminded notaries with expiring commissions in 2012 to renew their commissions online at https://notary.sos.state.mn.us beginning Aug. 1, 2011 through Jan. 31, 2012.
Notaries who are unable to file online, may submit renewal filings by mail to:  Minnesota Secretary of State, 60 Empire Drive, St. Paul,  MN 55103.
“It is important that a notary’s commission remain current,” Ritchie said. “I encourage notaries whose commissions are expiring to renew them online beginning Aug. 1.”
Notaries public are appointed by the governor and approved by the state senate after filing with the Office of the Secretary of State.  Notaries hold office for a five-year term.  Their commission expires on Jan. 31 in the fifth year after the commission was issued.
Once a notary public is commissioned or renews their commission, they must also register their commission in the county where they reside. The cost of a commission or for renewing a commission is $120 payable to the state plus a $20 fee to register with the county.
If a notary public commission expires, a notary must seek reappointment by submitting a completed Notary Public Application.  Application forms are available online by visiting https://notary.sos.state.mn.us, or by contacting the office at 651-296-2803 (select option 3 for assistance).
“Notary transactions are central to our lives. Whether it is starting a business, adopting a child or buying a home, there is no question that notaries serve an important role in the lives of Minnesotans,” explained Ritchie.
