Once your new commission, reappointment, renewal or name change has been approved by the Secretary of State and you have received your commission certificate, you must record your commission with your resident county. County contact information for your county of residence is included in the instructions. The fee for recording your commission at the county is $20.
Apply Via Mail
Send Notary Commission card from Office of the Secretary of State.
On the lines provided on the commission, include both a signature that exactly matches the name appearing on the notary commission, as well as a signature in the style normally used to sign. Both signatures need to be notarized on the same commission page.
Check or money order should be made payable to Sherburne County Recorder for $20.
Apply In Person
When you register with the county, please bring:
Notary Commission card from the Office of the Secretary of State.
$20 fee (we accept all forms of payment)
The same application can be used to change your name on your Notary Commission. The new card would need to be registered with the same county in Minnesota in which you originally registered.
