Notary Public

  • A notary public is appointed by the Governor of the State of Minnesota and serves as a witness, attesting that a person signing a document is authentic.
  • Notary public commissions are issued by the Minnesota Secretary of State.
  • Once you've received your notary public commission, you must register it with your county of residence.
  • The fee for recording your notary commission at the county is $20, and you'll have to record your commission in person since your signature is required.
  • Your commission will need to be renewed every five years.
