Remote Notarization: It Is Here to Stay
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, 23 states had remote notarization laws. In response to the pandemic, however, the remaining state governors and legislators have swiftly moved to pass laws—either by executive order or traditional legislative processes—to allow notaries to remotely carry out their duties while maintaining social distancing practices and abiding by stay-at-home orders. In addition, United States Senators Mark R. Warner (D-VA) and Kevin Cramer (R-ND) introduced S. 3533, the “Securing and Enabling Commerce Using Remote and Electronic (SECURE) Notarization Act of 2020,” which would permit immediate nationwide use of remote notarizations on a federal level that would, if enacted, preempt any and all of these state measures. These laws allow are intended to allow public notaries and other individuals authorized to administer oaths and affidavits, such as attorneys, to authenticate documents remotely for the duration of the COVID-19 emergency.
