If you want to become a Notary Public, you must contact the Secretary of State. Online applications are accepted at: https://notary.sos.state.mn.us
Once you have made your application and receive your Notary Public Commission card from the Secretary of State, you will need to file this with the county of your resident. You need to present your Notary Public Commission card, along with a filing of $20.00 and two specimens of your signature. One signature would be the signature of how you name appears on your commission, the second is the signature of how you will be signing the acknowledgments. If those are the same – sign it twice using the same signature. In Todd County this can be done in person or through the mail. It only takes a few moments and we will return your commission card back to you with the filing information shown on the reverse side.
