Secretary of state sets up remote notary process

Those needing notarization now can access services without in-person requirement

Posted

Following an executive order, the Colorado Secretary of State's Office has set up a process that will allow access to notary services without in-person contact. 

“Stopping the spread of COVID-19 while still providing the services Coloradans rely on has been our main focus over the last two weeks,” Secretary of State Jena Griswold said in a news release. “Remote notarization is the latest of these important services.”

Gov. Jared Polis issued an executive order March 28 that ordered the temporary suspension of the personal appearance requirement before notarial officers to perform notarizations due to the presence of coronavirus disease in Colorado.

Griswold has issued emergency rules that outline the procedures and requirements for remote notarization in Colorado during this state of emergency.

For the Notice of Temporary Adoption for the Colorado Notary Program Rules (8 CCR 1505-11), go to www.sos.state.co.us/pubs/rule_making/files/2020/20200330NotaryNoticeTempAdopt.pdf

The notice includes the adopted rules, a statement of basis, and statement of justification. For an unofficial copy of the notary rules as adopted and effective March 20, go to www.sos.state.co.us/pubs/rule_making/files/2020/8CCR1505-11Notary-Temporary.pdf
