Kentucky Notary Laws Updated


Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin signed a bill into law in the State of Kentucky that allows notarial acts to be done electronically and remotely.

This legislation brings Kentucky’s notary laws into step with the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts (RULONA) set by the Uniform Law Commission. Click here to learn more.

More notary work should be available to the average notary in Kentucky after this legislation. Notaries will not have to travel to every customer needing notarization; they can simply do it online. If you think it’s time to become a notary or need to renew your commission, a notary surety bond will be required to obtain your commission.
