We added some state specific information to the original post. It looks like a Delaware notary commission is the shortest while Louisiana is for life!

Most states have a four year notary term of office. Please visit
http://www.123notary.com/find-a-notary-public.asp and click on the name of your state to find out how long your state's notary term of office is.

A few months before the end of your term, you will need to inquire about renewing your notary commission. Your state notary division can help you with that. If you reside in California, allow extra time, because the California notary division is slow in processing commissions and budget cuts may effect its functioning.
