Hi Mike,
I have not heard about e-notarizations catching on at all. They are done very rarely by very few companies who purchased the necessary technology. I do belive its the thing of the future. It seems obvious to me that it is. However, the future could be like a horizon. The closer you get to it, the farther it becomes.

Jeremy,

I've never been asked to do an e-notarization here in Arizona. I know our state legislature passed laws defining "electronic notaries" and some procedures, but I don't know much more about it.

What I do know is that as early as three years ago I remember the NNA was making a big hype about e-notarization being the future and all, and they were selling the hardware and software to do it too. Is it my imagination or has this "e-notarization" simply not caught on?

-Mike

"Must be the clean air." Jeremy, when was the last trip you made to Denver? Air in Denver makes my eyes hurt...

A Colorado notary public may do e-notarizations if they are notaries, and are approved by the State of Colorado. How interesting.

There would need to be a document authentication number issued by the sec of state of CO. However, that number is to identify the notary and the notary's signature rather than the document. Hmm. interesting.

Also, a notification of intent must be filled out which includes the type of technology that is used in the notarization. The sec of state would provide an electronic log for the authentication numbers that would serve as a journal.

This is the first time I have heard of a detailed procedure that really makes sense. I'm not sure how they know the signer really signed. Perhaps if they know the "metrics" of the signers typical signature that would help. Only e-signatures can track metrics. I guess that Colorado is ahead of the game. Must be the clean air.

The approval to do e-notarizations also can expire if its revoked or when the notary's Colorado notary commission expires.

Have you guys heard of other states doing similar things? Does anyone have details? The NNA is always having news articles about this topic, but this is the first time I have read details. And these laws were laid out in 2004 or 2005 to my knowledge.

I hope the notaries in Colorado on
