Notary Commission Deadline Approaching for Notaries in Minnesota
January 31st marks the deadline for notaries with expiring commissions to renew on time. Minnesota Secretary of State, Mark Ritchie, recently reminded notaries to head this deadline in order to maintain current commissions.
If any notaries in MN are unsure of their expiration date they can visit their notary website. Notaries in Minnesota are appointed by the governor and approved by the State Senate after filing with the Secretary of State’s office. Notary commissions must be renewed before experation and are valid for a five year term and expire on January 31st of the 5th year.
To renew your notary commission you must pay the $120 renewal filing fee online or by mail. Notaries must also pay a $20 fee charged by their respective county.
If a notary allows his or her commission to expire, the notary must seek reappointment by submitting a complete Notary Public Application.
